2019 RCC Charity – Parkinson’s Foundation of Greater Rochester (Mary Ann Glasow and Timothy Glasow)
Each year the Rochester Corvette Club sponsors a charitable organization to support a worthwhile cause in our community.
This year The Parkinson’s Foundation of Greater Rochester was chosen. The Chairs for this charity are Timothy and Mary Ann Glasow.
The Parkinson’s Foundation Seeks to:
Throughout the Greater Rochester Area, the Parkinson's Foundation provides educational programs, support groups, wellness programs, respite grants and services to support caregivers. Mary Ann and Tim have benefited from the educational and support activities since Mary Ann was diagnosed in 2008. The foundation also provides a link to community based wellness programs for people with Parkinson’s. Mary Ann has participated and benefited from programs such as Rock Steady Boxing and the JCC ‘s Stretching the Limits.
Someone is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease every 9 minutes in the United State. No one should have to face Parkinson’s alone. That is why the Parkinson’s Foundation provides a community of support to give people the resources and help they need to live well with Parkinson’s.
We, as a club, will strive to raise funds to help support the further research and support for this Foundation. These funds will be raised through various club functions and raffles in 2019.
