Well I am at it again and I truly hope you will all support me! As many of you know my dad lived with Parkinson Disease for over 25 years and in 2016 he passed away due to complications of the disease. I saw my dad go from a strong vibrant man to someone who could not walk, talk or even feed himself. It was truly heartbreaking to see how Parkinson's completely changed his life. Coming from a low income household getting the best medical care was not easy and so after his death I have made a commitment to the Micheal J Fox Foundation to try and raise as much money as possible to find a cure.
This year due to COVID I hope to host a few virtual fund raisers and I hope you all can join me. Since I probably will not be running many races I decided to challenge myself to do something I've always wanted to do but like the NYC Marathon never had the guts to do it!!! Thanks to you all I finished the marathon in 2019 and now I am setting a goal to walk/run 1000 miles from January 1, 2021 - December 31, 2021. I am nervous and excited at the same time.
Please consider making a general donation or sponsoring me per mile, per week, per month, etc... Every $1 counts!!! How awesome would it be to get 100 people to each donate $100... That has always been a goal of mine as well.
10 cents a mile = $100
$2 a week = $104
$9 a month = $108
These are just examples! I hope you all love the idea and do your part to help me find a cure for Parkinson's.
