Hello! Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
If you’re here, it’s likely you know that Parkinson’s Disease has significantly impacted my life and the lives of all of my family members. From both of my grandfathers’ diagnoses when I was a young child to my mom’s when I was 20, PD has unfortunately been a presence in my life for as long as I can remember.
If you’re here, it’s also possible/probable you know about my involvement in Pacing for Parkinson’s. This is my sixth year running with P4P, my fifth on the committee, and my third in a leadership role.
If you know me at all, you know how incredibly important this cause is to me, my family, and the community of PD patients and caregivers I’ve grown to know and love. Though battling Parkinson’s Disease has been a part of my identity pretty much always, my involvement with P4P over the last six years has added running as a major part of my sense of self, my social life, a bit of income (I'm a coach now!) and what helps me get up in the morning, grateful that I can with relative ease.
Please consider donating to P4P and, by extension, the Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorder Center at Johns Hopkins Medicine, to help us reach our goal. Wondering how your donation will be used? Check this link out. Any amount, large or small, will help both me and so many Parkinson’s patients – my dear sweet Moma Reich included – continue to put one foot in front of the other in search of a cure.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart and the soul of my shoe, for reading.
PS. Check out this amazing feature in Parkinson’s Warriors on my little moma and me!
