my dads struggle with Parkinsons

My dad who means the world to me and is my hero was diagnosed roughly 7 years ago! Today he struggles with the disease like millions of others do. Having good days and bad days, and some horrible days! It is heart wrenching to watch your 70 year old dad who you worhsip and love not be able to do all the things he used to be able to do. Parkinsons is taking away his mobility and the ability to work outside and do phisical work which he loves and means so much to him! I formed this team to raise money and awarenss and support for this terrible disease. This is my 3rd year running in the Plattsburgh Half Marathon which is linked with TEAM FOX, which donates all proceeds to fight Parkinsons disease! Please help me out to reach my fundraising goal of $1000 on my dads behalf for 2014! Thanks to everyone who supported my team in 2013!
