I am participating in memory of my grandfather, Richard Odden. He battled with Parkinson's for quite some time and passed away when I was a young child. I didn't understand all the implications of Parkinson's disease until I was much older, but I could see what a toll it took on my grandmother, father, and uncle. I am walking in his memory, but also doing what I can to raise donations so we can help other families who struggle with Parkinson's. Let's find a cure!
I am participating in the Moving Day Chicago walk for the National Parkinson Foundation on October 19, 2014.
Please consider being a part of my team or sponsoring me, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved.

NPF programs reach more than one million people a year through its network of 39 chapters, 43 Centers of Excellence and 900 support groups.

Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the National Parkinson Foundation.
