Team Lu

Welcome to Team Lu!

We are walking in memory of my grandfather Lu Youxuan, who we called Gong Gong. Gong Gong was diagnosed in 1992, shortly after his eldest daughter, my mother, moved from China to the United States. After his diagnosis, Gong Gong fought to continue to live a full and active life. In 2001, he even traveled across the world to spend treasured time in the United States with his daughter and grandchildren.

Gong Gong was a skilled accordionist, a talented singer, and a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He passed away in 2011, after nearly 20 years of living with PD. Those years were challenging, especially for my mother, who lived on the other side of the world from her father. For me, Parkinson's took away my opportunity to get to know my grandfather. I walk to fight for improved treatment and for a cure for those currently living with Parkinson's so that their loved ones may get to know them.

I invite you to join us in the fight to beat Parkinson's disease. We’ve united to raise awareness and funds for the Parkinson’s Foundation Moving Day, A Walk for Parkinson’s. Whether you register to join our team or donate, you’re helping us make life better for the one million people with Parkinson’s and the nearly 90,000 more that will be diagnosed this year. Your support is crucial in helping the Parkinson’s Foundation fulfill its commitment to finding a cure and enhancing the quality of life for those living with Parkinson’s today.

Thank you for supporting our team and the vital work of the Parkinson’s Foundation!
