Roseville, MN natives David Blomquist, a PDF employee, and his fiancé, Linnea Goderstad are setting their paddles in motion to achieve a 10-year, adventurous dream. The couple is canoeing down the more than 2,300-mile span of the Mississippi River this summer from Minnesota to Louisiana, with a goal of raising $1 for each mile they canoe.
Mr. Blomquist works as the Senior National Programs Coordinator for the Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF). As a member of our team, he works on a daily basis with 200 people with PD and care partners who make up PDF's Parkinson's Advocates in Research (PAIR) program. He says he sees the adventure as a way to continue making a difference in the fight against Parkinson's disease.
"With my connection to PDF, both Linnea and I thought this endeavor could also be a great opportunity to continue supporting the Parkinson's community by becoming PDF Champions," he says.
As the couple continues to push forward — already braving muddy swamps, rising floodwaters and misty fog — they are documenting their journey on their Traveling Riverside blog.
