Drive Toward a Cure
A few years ago, a close relative of mine was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. Through him, I’ve learned what a day-to-day struggle it is for a Parkinson’s sufferer to manage their symptoms just to perform basic life tasks. Some days are good, some are bad, and there’s very little understanding of what causes the bad days. The bad days come seemingly without warning, and with no easily detectable pattern as to why.
And Parkinson’s can strike any one of us.
Last year I established a partnership with a non-profit organization called Drive Toward a Cure, which pursues the creation of driving events that team Cars and Camaraderie to raise funds and awareness to support the challenges of Parkinson’s Disease, benefiting research and patient care. For more information, please visit www.drivetowardacure.org.
This spring I organized the tenth running of the annual “Mother, May I?” spring tour, which raised nearly $5,000 on behalf of Drive Toward a Cure. To keep that momentum going, I've joined this year's Drive Toward a Cure 75 Days of Summer campaign for the second straight year! Last year my fundraising page raised over $4,000, and this year I’ve set a goal of $5,000. Will you help me surpass that goal?
Every dollar helps - your donation is much appreciated, and you'll receive a tax receipt right away by email. (Just make sure you enter your email address correctly!)

What 's the Processing Fee?
Drive Toward a Cure is charged a fee for every transaction. In order to maximize our fundraising in support of Parkinson's Disease research and patient care, we are asking that registrants agree to cover this fee. It is your option, however, and you may decline to cover the extra fee. We won't think any less of you If
