50K Facebook “Like” Challenge

The goal is to have 50,000 people “like” the Run4Papa FB page. The journey starts with each one of you and we need your help!  By “liking” the page & sharing it with your friends, we hope to parallel the goal of raising $50,000 by getting 50,000 fans. This way, we will reach far more people across the globe and help create awareness about PPA and move toward finding a cure!

Reunite with Dr. Heyman

Help Support the Climb of 5,164 

Here is an opportunity to come together for a special reunion to honor and meet up with Dr. Louis “Papa” Heyman in the local Metro Detroit area on October 9th, 2011.

Since there are 5,164 steps to climb and descend on the Great Wall of China Marathon, we thought it would be a creative way to organize a fundraiser where former patients, employees, colleagues, students, friends and family can help pledge $1 a step to reach the goal of 5,164.

Platinum                                                                         500  Steps

Gold                                                                                250  Steps

My Journey Begins

Hello, my name is Jason F. Boschan and I am embarking on a journey to create awareness and raise funds for PPA research locally, nationally and internationally by running the 2012 GREAT WALL OF CHINA MARATHON on behalf of my grandfather and others battling this disease.

I have partnered with the Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer’s Disease Center at Northwestern University to raise a minimum of $20,000. My grandfather, Dr. Louis “Papa” Heyman, 86 years young, recently stopped practicing as a pediatrician after 50+ years due to his diagnosis of PPA. This has been a very difficult adjustment for him as well as for all of our family.

Please help support my journey to bring global awareness and help find a cure for PPA.
