Welcome to my Fundraising Page for the 2017 Mary Pickett Memorial Invitational
Dear Friends, Family and Co-Workers,
The past two years of fundraising for PKD Research have been a huge success. In 2015, we raised $15,000 and last year, we raised over $24,000!!! This year, in 2017, we are very excited to announce that the main beneficiary will again be the Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute of the Cleveland Clinic. All proceeds will go directly to their PKD research fund and will assist in the search for a cure!
The below information will continue to get updated as we move further into the planning process. This event is very dear to my heart and I am looking forward to your support and participation for a very important cause.
As many of you are aware, my Mother, Mary Pickett, lost a long hard-fought battle with PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) in December of 2014. While she was alive, she taught her family to always fight the good fight. She never gave up in anything that she ever did, and that legacy is honored through the “Razz Way of Life.” This event is in honor of Mary Pickett and its purpose is to raise money to grow their efforts to find a cure for this disease.

Thank you for coming to the page I’ve set up on behalf of Cleveland Clinic.
I am supporting Cleveland Clinic because of the great work they do in putting patients first, and because of the research they conduct to prevent and cure diseases. I feel passionately about Cleveland Clinic because of the miracles that take place there every day, and invite you to join me in supporting this world-renowned institution.
To continue leading the transformation of healthcare, there are four strategic areas in which Cleveland Clinic seeks to invest resources and talent:
• Promoting Health - The transformation of medicine has to start with Patients First. With the help of philanthropy, they care for the whole patient: body, mind and spirit.
• Training Caregivers - Cleveland Clinic is committed to training the best and brightest caregivers of the future to ensure world-class healthcare for generations to come.
• Transforming Care - Cleveland Clinic has more technologies in development, but they need additional resources to speed these life-saving devices from the lab bench to their patients
• Advancing Discovery - Cleveland Clinic’s Lerner Research Institute is exploring the most advanced ideas, however the Cleveland Clinic researchers need funds for pilot projects.
One idea can create a cure. One caregiver can change countless lives. And One gift can make a difference. The Power of Every One is the power of shared vision, generosity and effort. We can’t do this without you.
Please join me so together we can help support Cleveland Clinic.
Thanks again for your support.
