Following the onset of Kennedy's Disease, Ed Montie began the strongest fight of his life. He was courageous and optimistic through every step along his journey. We sadly lost Ed Montie on April 11, 2011. Words cannot express how proud we are of him and thankful for having had him in our lives.

Kennedy’s disease is a genetic neuromuscular disease with symptoms similar to ALS. It affects men starting in their 30s or 40s & gradually weakens all muscles over time. Many are wheelchair bound by their 40s, and lack upper body strength to compensate. Swallowing & lung muscles weaken to the point that assistive devices are necessary. This is a rare disease & research funds are limited. The Kennedy's Disease Association is devoted to funding research to find a cure for this debilitating disease. 


Please help us all to continue Ed's fight against this devastating disease and to honor his memory by registering for the 3rd Annual "Ed Montie 5K Race to Cure Kennedy's Disease." Proceeds will be donated to research via the Kennedy's Disease Association (KDA), to help find a cure for patients living with KD. We are forever grateful of your support. -The Montie Family 


***Raffle prizes will be available, so please bring some extra cash with you.


Thank you for your support! All proceeds benefit the Kennedy's Disease Association, a 501(c)(3) organization.
