PDF Champion to Run Los Angeles Marathon in Honor of Father
Tam Huynh of Burbank, CA, is on the run for Parkinson's research. Ms. Huynh will run the Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday, March 15 to benefit PDF. She is dedicating her fifth marathon to honor her father who has lived with Parkinson’s for more than 10 years.
Ms. Huynh, 40, works as an IT developer and cares for her dad at home. With support from family and friends, she hopes to raise $500 by race day.
“I really want to raise awareness and funds for PDF to help others living with this disease cope more easily. I know for my dad it’s a struggle to be independent when Parkinson’s has limited his mobility. I hope more people will invest in finding a cure,” says Ms. Huynh.
Teacher to Run New York City Half Marathon in Memory of Grandfather
Michael Scire, of Brooklyn, NY, is taking on his first New York City Half Marathon on Sunday, March 15 in memory of his grandfather.
Mr. Scire, 23, is a physical education teacher and lifeguard. His family has rallied behind his efforts to raise awareness and funds, helping him raise more than $700 toward his goal thus far.
“My Poppop and I were so close, from my birth until the day he died in my arms. He was the strongest man I ever met and to see his struggle with Parkinson's hurt me so much,” says Mr. Scire. “If I can help just one person who also struggles with this disease by running through the streets of New York in a PDF jersey, that will have made it all worth it.”
