Murray, an Afghanistan veteran who is currently stationed in Germany, will complete the Ergo IRONMAN 70.3 Luxembourg triathlon on Saturday, June 20 to raise funds for PDF.

“I’m racing for PDF to show how passionate I am about helping people who live with Parkinson’s. I have always wanted to become a neurologist and am applying to medical school this year,” says First Lt. Murray. “I have competed in several endurance challenges, but after I came across an article on Parkinson's disease that led me to PDF’s website, I knew I wanted to dedicate a race to this cause.”

PDF Research Advocate Hosts Second Annual Golf Outing for PD on Monday, June 29

Greg Hardoby of Rahway, NJ, is taking a swing at Parkinson’s disease. He is inviting the community to participate in his second annual Putt Fore Parkinson’s golf outing to benefit PDF. The event takes place on Monday, June 29 from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM at the Hyatt Hills Golf Complex in Clark, NJ.

Mr. Hardoby also volunteers with PDF as a Research Advocate. He was inspired to organize the golf outing with his family to raise funds for research and awareness in the community. They are building on the success of last year’s outing which welcomed 30 golfers and raised more than $5,000.

“I hope to raise more awareness of Parkinson’s disease. That awareness will generate donations, and the donations will lead to more research, and more research will ultimately lead to a cure,” says Mr. Hardoby.
