My brother-in-law, Jeff, was diagnosed with CJD in the late spring of 2020. He passed away on November 12, 2020, coincidentally International CJD Awareness Day. Jeff was a passionate sports fan and particularly a huge Ohio State fan. He loved to run and completed 25 marathons. He participated in many charity running events, so it seems especially appropriate that we walk in his honor with the goal that eventually there are treatments for this disease.
