In our honor of our mom, Beverly, we are running the New York City Marathon to raise money for the Parkinson Support Center of Kentuckiana.

On Sunday, November 7th, we (some of Beverly's kids along with her grandkids as a cheerleaders) will be hitting the pavement and running the historic New York City Marathon. We'll be donning our sneakers to raise money for the Parkinson Support Center of Kentuckiana (, where our Mom gets help for her Parkinson’s disease. 

PSCKY has support groups and movement classes. Their core value is that no one should have to face Parkinson's disease alone. Face it, getting a Parkinson's diagnosis is scary. It takes a lot of guts and inner strength, and it also takes lots of support. We are so grateful that our mom has a place where people understand what she is going through and where she can access resources to keep her physically and emotionally strong. Thank you, Parkinson Support Center of Kentuckiana!

Thank you for donors for your generosity,
The Wagners and the Benzes.

"We promise we will give it our all!"

* Note that due to the illness in the family, we had to delay our original plan for an August race. Thanks for your understanding and support of our mom and our cause.
