There’s nothing like a good cause to motivate a person to excel. Holly Parnell has a muse in her son Sam Salegna, who has Down Syndrome. Down Syndrome is a genetic disorder caused by the presence of all or part of a third copy of chromosome 21. It is typically associated with delays in physical growth, characteristic facial features and lower than average intellectual ability.
Holly is currently training to run in a fundraising group in the 2016 Boston Marathon to be held on April 18. She and her team must raise $10,000 to be included as a fundraising group at the event. They had raised $1681 as of Thursday and have a lot of fundraisers planned to raise the rest of the money.
