5th Annual Teresa’s Birthday Benefit for CURE
SAVE THE DATE!

Thursday, September 10, 2015
7-10pm

111 Minna Art Gallery
Zappa Room
111 Minna (between 5th & 6th Streets, San Francisco)

Please join us for the 5th Annual Teresa's Birthday Benefit for CURE on Thursday, September 10 in San Francisco!

We look forward to seeing you there to celebrate a milestone year, our 5th anniversary. When we started this event to honor Teresa and celebrate her birthday we had no idea the impact we could make. Our goal this year is to raise $12,000 to bring our cumulative five-year fundraising total to $50,000!

Our event honoree, Teresa Walsh, died from SUDEP on November 23, 2010, 5 years after being diagnosed with epilepsy. During the time since Teresa's passing great strides have been made in the quest for a cure, but there is more work to be done. Your support of this event and of CURE helps to bring us closer to a day when the millions of people currently suffering from epilepsy will be seizure free.

The Toadstool Pub
Highwood, IL

Our interest in raising funds for epilepsy research started with our daughter Maggie; but this really isn’t about her. Epilepsy is one of the most prevalent, yet underfunded neurological disorders in the United States. Those living with epilepsy deal with varying degrees of significantly life altering symptoms every day.  Research has provided some patients and their families with effective medications, nutritional plans, and an enormous amount of hope.

Event starts at 6:00pm
There will be a live auction, silent auction and raffles with great prizes.

Check the RE Epilepsy Facebook page often for auction item announcements!

Columbus Marathon
Running in memory of Jenna Parlette

Sunday, October 18, 2015
8:00 am

In October I am running my first full marathon at the Nationwide Children's Columbus Marathon. Although running this distance is a feat itself I decided to take it a step further and run for a cause. It both gives me motivation in my training as well as raises money for a great cause.

In August of 2013 my close friend and former teammate, Jenna Parlette, was running a race at Franklin College. She was leading the race with less than 100 meters to go when she collapsed before finishing and never regained consciousness. She died a few days later at 20 years young. Jenna lived with epilepsy since 6th grade and also was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat. Despite these set backs she never backed down. She was a top runner in the Ohio Athletic Conference and record holder of the 5000 and 10,000 meters at Wilmington College.

Since then her friends and family have been trying to carry on her legacy. She was a wonderful person, an amazing runner, a dedicated student, loving daughter, and great friend and I would be honored to run in her name for such a great cause.

America's Friendliest Marathon
Richmond, VA

Saturday, November 14, 2015

My journey to 50 marathons across 50 states has taken me to my hometown marathon (Pittsburgh), one of the 5 World Marathon Majors and current hometown marathon (Chicago), "America's Most Beautiful Urban Marathon" (Twin Cities), and the Kentucky Derby Marathon (Louisville).  Next, I will attempt to tackle number five, "America's Friendliest Marathon" on November 14th in Richmond, VA.

While I have run for many great causes in the past, this time I will be fundraising for a very special charity AND an outstanding organization that I am proud to work for professionally: Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE).
