Why Team Fox: My grandfather has been living with Parkinsonís for over 15 years.
Why races: I enjoy running ó Iím on the cross country team at my high school.
Greatest challenge: Having to watch my grandfather deal with the disease and knowing that there is no cure.
Greatest reward: Knowing that I am doing what I can to help people with Parkinsonís. Whatís next: I am running a half marathon in October for Team Fox and focusing on my junior year while looking at colleges.
How I think/able: Donít get hung up on raising huge sums of money ó every little bit helps.
