PDF Champions Friday!
PDF CHAMPIONS FRIDAY
Surprise… Happy 60th Birthday to Gary Chard from Wilmington, DE! There is no better way to celebrate your birthday than with a surprise party thrown by family and friends - - while fundraising for PDF at the same time!
At the beginning of the year, Gary’s wife Beth Ann came to PDF with the fantastic idea of turning Gary’s special ‘secret’ bash into a PDF Champions fundraising event http://www.pdf.org/en/pdf_champion. Gary was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2008 at the age of 56. Together Gary and Beth Ann have been extremely involved in the Parkinson’s community. Gary presents educational topics about Parkinson’s to support groups in NJ, PA, MD and DE and Beth Ann has become a true care partner and a PDF Research Advocate http://www.pdf.org/en/research_advocate.
I am so pleased to announce that Gary’s party raised over $2,500 for Parkinson’s research! Applause all around!
Remember: The Cure Begins with YOU!
