FUNDRAISER - Virtual Run/Walk - March 25-26
FUNDRAISER - VIRTUAL FUN RUN for Mike Kersten's Service Dog
My high school classmate, Mike Kersten, was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease at the young age of thirty-three. With two young children, Mike has battled this disease for the past several years.
Mike is currently raising funds for a service dog to help his battle with safety and mobility, medication dosage and depression.
100% of the funds raised from this virtual fun run will be donated directly to Mike Kersten for his service dog, training and expenses.
On March 25-26, individuals may run their own virtual 5K run/walk or a family may participate in a one mile fun run/walk. Participants will be invited to participate via a private Facebook page to share their tribute run/walk, photos and stories about Mike. Participants will receive a private event Facebook invitation from Running Diva Mom during the week of the fun run/walk.
I look forward to sharing your gift with Mike, and reconnecting with him after 20 years, at the Parkinson's Half Marathon in Cottage Grove on Saturday, April 1.
You may read Mike Kersten's story on his Go Fund Me page. Please share if you are so inclined.
REGISTRATION is only $10 per person.
