Join Us for the Parkinson’s Research Run
Written by Invictus Member Bridget Garwitz

Throw on your green and come run with your fellow Invicti for a good cause! In a couple weeks, the annual Step-by-Step 5K to support Parkinson’s research will take place in Point Loma, and I’m inviting members of our awesome Invictus community to run together to support a cause that is personal to me.

Every family has different holiday traditions. Don’t be afraid to start one around health and fitness. Starting a holiday with a hike, run, swim, etc…is a great way to bond together – and also makes folks feel better about eating their special holiday treats.

And a huge thank you for the great week of training to superstars Noah Pester,
