THE STORY:

Meet Tura and Bridget:
Tura is running the "Run Like a Diva" event as her second half marathon.  During the training for her first half marathon two years ago, she realized that she was much more motivated to train when she had a cause to support.  This event didn't come with its own charities, so she decided to make it happen for herself.  
But she didn't want to run this race alone, so she talked her friend Bridget, also a Chicago transplant to the east coast, into running it, too.  This will be Bridget's first half marathon.  
 

A few years ago, Tura was lucky enough to meet the young and dynamic David Blechman.  He told her his family's story and that they had started a foundation to help do Parkinson's research.  One of the programs they fully support is helping those with PD keep active through dance classes!

We want to help this program continue and help this foundation help researchers!

Whether you know someone with PD or not, help us help this young man make a difference in thousands of lives!
