Drive Away Parkinson's Inc. has been established to promote awareness about and raise money to find a cure for Parkinson's Disease. This nonprofit organization will conduct fundraising events and donate the proceeds to companies actively looking for a cure for Parkinson's Disease.
It is a hard thing for me to admit that I am disabled. Especially since my DBS surgery. I feel so good. But the truth of the matter is I am. It is a good thing my friend Richie new it. Richie and a few other friends are volunteers with a wonderful organization called Operation Beachhead.
Operation Beachhead is a non-profit organization based at the Jersey Shore providing adventurous, yet safe, all-season sports for veterans, active duty troops, and individuals with disabilities. A number of years ago Richie invited me to their ice hockey event in Old Bridge.
This summer I have been going to their beach event. This is where they get me in the water surfing with a guide. I am not a beach or water person but this makes me feel ALIVE! I love it. All the volunteers are so nice. It is a great morning out. Check out their Facebook page, Operation Beachhead. Click here for photos from my adventure.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors to date we have been able to donate $70,000 to the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinsons research.
We were one of the Team Fox teams honored as an MVP Team..
