Event History: Celebrate Spring Boston was first founded by Rehana Ashraf and Anne Greene in 2013 to "honor those we have lost to Parkinson's, like my father, and support our loved ones who are bravely living with it, like Anne's father, by raising awareness and funds for research," according to Rehana. Celebrate Spring Boston has raised $180,000 since its inception.
