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!

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