Fundraising Page for Kate DeWitte

Date of Event: MM/DD/YYYY
Location: City, State
Welcome to My PDF Champions Home Page:

Hello All!
My Name is Kate DeWitte and I am a senior in high school. For my Senior Project I am raising money and awareness for PD in my community. Parkinson's Disease is very close to my heart for my father has the disease.
I am inviting kids like me, and anyone that has a friend or loved one affected by the disease, to join me in the fight to defeat it.
I intend to start a website to help kids deal with a subject that is difficult to understand, and very hard on a family.
Along with updates on my web page, I will also be using the opportunity of being a PDF Champion to showing my progress with fundraising, my project, and other information about PD.
I will keep you all posted!

Thank you for making a donation that would help fund educational programs and research.

Kids can make a difference too! :)

As a Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF) Champion, I am working to raise funds to improve the lives and futures of people touched by Parkinson’s and to ultimately find a cure.

Did you know that nearly one million people in the United States are living with Parkinson’s disease? I am organizing my PDF Champions event in honor of these individuals and their loved ones who are impacted each day by Parkinson’s.

Parkinson’s disease is chronic neurological disease, for which there is currently no cure. But promising research is being conducted. Since its founding in 1957, PDF has dedicated over $90 million to fund the work of leading scientists throughout the world and over $37 million to support national education and advocacy programs.

Every donation really does make a difference in advancing PDF’s mission. Please help me reach my goal by making a donation today.

More than 81 percent of PDF’s funds go directly toward its programs. PDF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and all gifts are tax deductible.

Thank you in advance for your support!

6/19/2013Hi Kate, I was very touched when I read in PDF News about all the work you've been doing to educate people about Parkinson's and to raise money to continue research work. I admire the intelligent way you decided to research and learn for yourself, and then teach others. I would admire you even if I had no direct connection to PD. However, my son, Peter, also has early onset PD, making what you're doing hugely significant for me. You are very special! Thank you.Karen Northrop
6/8/2013Hi Kate, I was so proud of you when I read the article about you and your work with PD in the New Milford Spectrum today. Not only was it a pleasure to see your smiling face in the picture, but I was drawn immediately to the subject matter because my mother suffered for many years from Parkinson's and I am a strong advocate for education and research on PD. You are and always have been a bright light in the lives of all whom you touch, and bless you for taking this on and making such a difference. Kris CassarKristine Cassar
5/24/2013Hi Kate, We want to help you with your Senior Project, which is a real sign of loving and caring, and because we also love and care for you and your Mom and Dad and other families dealing with PD. You've chosen a very worthwhile project and we hope all your hopes and wishes will be blessed with goodness. God Bless, Tom & AnnTom & Ann Tibbatts
5/7/2013Hi Kate, though I have not met you yet, your dad speaks of you often. My wife and I met him last year at a Parkinson’s conference. He is tremendously supportive in my “shaky” walk with Parkinson’s. I see now why he is so very proud of you. This is an impressive senior project. I am a teacher at a high school and know quite a bit about them. I’d love to see a copy of your presentation after you present it (if you get it recorded), or maybe put any videos you are going to show there up online afterwards. Go strong into your future. Something tells me you are going to make a difference wherever you go! And, from a person with Parkinson's and still working and hoping to keep teaching for many years, THANK YOU!Brian and Lily Reedy
4/30/2013Congratulations Kate, on the supreme effort that you are putting into this very special project. You are showing a wonderful commitment to assist others of your age in understanding Parkinson`s Disease and it`s impact on a family plus relatives and close friends. You and your Dad make a courageous team. Thank you for your excellent advocacy work and successful fundraising on behalf of us all. Together, we can make a difference! I wish you all the best as you enter a new level of education, by attending College, this Fall. Warmest regards, Ms PDF Champion! :) Ryan Tripp Canadian friend & WPC 2013 AmbassadorRyan Tripp
