Our heroes this week are the Brady family who despite the challenges got involved in Pause 4 Parkinson’s and raised over $650 for research.
Greg Brady was diagnosed with Parkinson’s 26 years ago and has shown amazing strength, patience and determination to keep moving. His speech and swallowing have been affected and he finds it difficult to keep his eyes open. Walking and daily activities are a challenge however he still keeps going every day with a smile.
Through the support of his wife Rosemary, the whole family got behind For Pause for Parkinson’s where they spent the day baking and icing 90 cupcakes. They then loaded them into the car with Greg and visited their families and friends.
The response they received was truly amazing with their friends so happy to see Greg and donate to such an important cause.
After 3 1/2 hours, they were able to collect $656, catch up with old friends and know they had made a difference.
The Brady’s look forward to next year and coming up with a new idea to raise money and awareness for this cause which is so close to our hearts.
