Heidi Deery’s father was diagnosed with Multi-System Atrophy six years before his passing. Through the Dick Deery Run/Walk, the family and Team Fox members have raised over $75,000 in nine years for the Micheal J. Fox Foundation.

A Memory Wall will be available to share “Lessons Learned” from those affected by the disease. During the day a photo memory book will be created to send to the Micheal J. Fox Foundation.
