FOR pppd AWARENESS

2019

Mason, OH

We are excited to announce that we are preparing for our third annual The HERO Club 5k. Let’s do this!

Our goal is to raise awareness and funds for a chronic condition that afflicts by my mother and many more, called Persistent Postural-Perceptual Dizziness (PPPD). PPPD, also known as 3PD, is a neurological condition that was discovered in 2015 by the Mayo Clinic, MN. It causes its patients to experience persistent sensations of rocking, dizziness, light-headedness, ocular problems, and several other symptoms. There is no known exact cause or cure for this condition. Furthermore, PPPD is widely unknown by many doctors and people alike and is not even in the ICD codes. We will continue donating all of our funds to the Mayo Clinic so they can continue to further research and hopefully discover a cure for PPPD.
