The Hope is in the Science

John's Fiesta 5K Page


Welcome to my homepage. I formed a team to run in the annual Fiesta 5K, a race that rasies funds for Packard Foundation to find a cure for ALS. Team HRS has been together since 2014 and will continue supporting research to cure ALS.


Our team was organized for the 2014 run after we learned that our dear friend Richard was diagnosed with ALS. We were fortunate that Richard's many friends and family supported our team, raising significant support for research at the Packard Center. Richard was a fierce proponent of research to improve the health of all people and we hope to carry that tradition forward. 


However, Richard's diagnosis was not the first time someone close to me had the disease. Years earlier my mother died from ALS. I miss her every day. I hope that researchers can cure this disease that takes special people from our lives way too soon.
