Parkinson’s Disease is a neurodegenerative disorder with symptoms that often develop slowly over years. It impacts almost one million people in the US alone, though the cause of the disease is still mostly unknown.

One of our amazing clients, Lionel Sanchez, the Director of Marketing at McColly Real Estate is running the Chicago Marathon on October 9th in honor and in memory of his father-in-law, who battled Parkinson’s Disease. Sanchez is running with the Parkinson’s Champions to support and raise awareness for the Parkinson’s Foundation.

Given there’s still much to learn about Parkinson’s Disease, and given Sanchez’s dedication, we are hoping to help him in his efforts to support those battling or caring for loves ones with Parkinson’s Disease. The Parkinson’s Foundation is an organization that’s dedicated to improving the quality of life for those with Parkinson’s through care and research. It also offers support and resources for family members and loved ones of those with Parkinson’s Disease.
