In Memory of Mary Barnhart
This year it's extra personal and meaningful...
Hello, dear ones. It's that time of year again, when I fundraise for the annual fall Optimism Walk to support the Connecticut Chapter of the APDA. Every year, I would walk in honor of my Mom; this year, for the first time, I'm walking in memory of her.
It's extra meaningful for me this year, because the CT Chapter has kindly chosen Mom as their Optimism Walk Honoree. So forgive me if I stump a little harder for contributions this year...but I wanna do Mom and her memory proud. ❤️
Thank you for being my supporters these past five years. I am proud to continue to serve on the Board of the CT Chapter of the APDA and engage with the inspiring community of PWP (Person/s with Parkinson's), their care partners and families, and dedicated health care professionals--all of whom strive to make a difference every day, in every way.
Please give what you can to help me reach (and perhaps surpass) my fundraising goal!
Some facts and figures:
- Every six minutes someone is diagnosed with Parkinson's disease (PD).
- Funds raised enable the American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) to continue providing local education, information, and support, as well as critical nationwide virtual programs to keep everyone supported and connected no matter where they live. You will also help fund scientific research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and ultimately a cure.
- The more funds we raise, the more people we can help!
Today can be a great day for us both, and for the PD community! Simply make an easy online donation by clicking on the 'Support Me/Donate Now" button. Any amount is appreciated. You will automatically receive a confirmation email and I will be notified by email of your support.
Thank you so much for your generosity. Together, we are truly making a difference for those in need!
