Did you know that Parkinson's Disease is the second most diagnosed neurological disorder, coming in just behind Alzheimer's Disease? Every 9 minutes someone is diagnosed with Parkinson's. Funds raised through my running in the the APDA Optimism Walk will fund scientific research into the causes, prevention, treatments and ultimately the cure as well as continue to provide information, and support to those touched by Parkinson disease in our community.
I was diagnosed on Dec. 7, 2011 with no family history of the disease. I'm running to ensure that those affected by PD have as much support and the possibility of a cure as possible.
Thank you for visiting my personal Fundraising Page for the APDA Optimism Walk! You can make an online donation by clicking on the 'Support Me' button. You will automatically receive a confirmation email and I will be notified by email of your support.
Thank you, in advance, for your generosity. Together, we are truly making a difference for those in need!
