Half Marathon for Jack Silver

By Jesse Simon

My Activity Tracking


My target 100 mi

I'm running a half marathon for cerebral palsy research in honor of Jack!

My nephew, Jack, was born with CP and has undergone a battery of tests and procedures to ultimately diagnose and treat him properly. He recently underwent a difficult tendon transfer operation to increase his chances of having the ability to walk. 

In honor of Jack, and my sister & brother-in-law's tremendous efforts, I’m raising funds and awareness for Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation (CPARF) to move cerebral palsy research and disability innovation forward.

Any contribution you make will make a difference. Your gift will support:

  • Studies focused on unlocking movement for people with CP — from holding their head up for the first time to taking steps in ways they never have before.  
  • Technology that makes it easier for people with CP to grasp and grip items they need.
  • Research into the chronic pain that affects 14.5 million people with CP.
  • Innovation that makes it possible for people with CP to access and control their personal technology with voice commands, facial expressions, body gestures, and more.

Please help me reach my giving goal. Together, we change lives and move CP research forward.

Thanks so much for your support!
