MY NYC MARATHON FUNDRAISING PAGE

 

Thank you for visiting my personal Fundraising Page!

 

 

 My grandmother Martha Gallella, known to our family as "Ninie",  has been battling Parkinsons for several years now.

She was a major part of my life growing up. In the last 17 years, she has had to go thru losing her husband, daughter and most recently her longtime fiance. She is now living in a nursing home, confined to a wheelchair. 

I am running in the New York City Marathon November 2, 2014 in honor of my grandmother and everyone who is battling this horrible, debiliating disease. Please consider donating whatever you can. Every little bit counts!

Please spread the word thru Facebook or Twitter too if you can!

 

Thanks!

Five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson's disease - a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure for Parkinson's disease.
