Please consider joining me in my efforts to raise money to help find a cure for Parkinson's disease. As some of you know, my mom was diagnosed almost 5 years ago with the disease. Fortunately, she is doing well, but I would love to eliminate this challenge from her life.
My family and I will be running in the Sunflower Rev It Up for Parkinson's 5K on September 10th, to raise money for University of Cincinnati Gardner Neuroscience Institute, a leading treatment, research and teaching center for complex neurological conditions including Parkinson's. Exciting things are happening in Parkinson's research, but funds and volunteers are needed.
Our team name for the race is, There's Something About Mary. If you are fortunate enough to know my mom, then I am sure you get it. She has an undefinable quality that puts everyone at ease and makes everyone feel welcome. She handles all of life's challenges with strength, grace and resilience. I am so proud to call her my mom.
