How can you turn $5 into $5000?

By having 1,000 people come together to donate $5 for Primary Progressive Aphasia Research. With less than 20 days to go to the Great Wall of China Marathon, I am only $5,000 from my goal of $50,000, 100% of which will go to research for PPA.

With your $5 donation to Run4Papa, you can turn my 5K into $5K! That’s one cup of coffee at your local Starbucks.

I will host five 5K RUN/WALKS every other day around some of  Queen City’s most recognizable areas in Charlotte until the remaining $5K has been raised. ANYONE and EVERYONE-RUNNERS, WALKERS, KIDS, PETS- are welcome to participate “Forrest Gump Style” (show up and run) to help raise awareness for THE CAUSE. The more the merrier!

Schedule: Rain or Shine. No Cost. Just Show up!

Wednesday May 2th, 6:30PM – Little Sugar Creek GreenwayThe Greenway, 1908 East Blvd, Start of Route(Run/Walk the Greenway)

Friday May 4th, 6:30PM – Freedom Park by the bridge surrounding the water (Run/Walk around the water and through the trails in the park)

Sunday May 6th, 2:00PM – Southpark Mall in front of the amphitheater near Dick’s Sporting Goods (Run/Walk around the outside of the mall – loads of foot traffic!)

Tuesday May 8th, 6:30PM – Corner of S. Tryon and Trade St. (Run/Walk up and down S. Tryon for 5K creating a massive buzz 2nd-7th street, up one side back the other, should be unreal!)

Thursday May 10th, 6:30PM – White Water Center by the Cafe (Run/Walk through the trails and then having drinks outside afterwards)

With awareness comes donations, with donations comes research, with research comes treatment, and with treatment comes a cure.  -Jason F. Boschan
