Strides for Gary Speed
Join us for a walk/run in honor of my dad, Gary Speed, who passed away in 2021 after a brief and courageous battle with CJD. Currently, this devastating disease has no treatment or cure. Funds from this event will go toward the CJD Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, to provide family support, medical education, and research programs.
