Ciao a tutti!
Thank you for coming to my donation page! I am now preparing to go on my third hiking adventure with my Power Over Parkinson’s! friends.
After tackling Machu Picchu in 2016, the Camino Santiago in 2018 and slogging through the COVID19 pandemic I’m training to head up the Dolomites in the Italian Alps in September 2021.
I am not only hiking to challenge myself but also to represent friends with PD who would like to be hiking the Dolomites but are unable to do so because of their symptoms, especially those who have donated and those who helped finance my trip.
This year we are raising money for the very worthy Parkinson’s Association of San Diego. They provide assistance & education to the many thousands of folks in San Diego with Parkinson’s Disease and their families.
So, until there is a cure or treatment to end the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease, we need to support great organizations like the Parkinson’s Association of San Diego to help them help us live the best lives we can in the face of this insidious, incurable disease.
My PD diagnosis was 10 years ago and thankfully it has progressed slowly. I do my best to do what’s good for my health including diet, rest, Centering Prayer, Rock Steady Boxing, and of course, hiking.
I’m excited to take on this Daring Dolomite Challenge. All of us hikers are paying our own travel expenses so the money we raise will go 100% to the Parkinson’s Association of San Diego. Please help me reach my fundraising goal of $2000 & I’ll do the climbing!
