there is no "i" in neon

image: team neon extreme takes a break from running for a paparazzi photo opp. learn about the team here!

on may 6th and 7th, 12 friends ran 189 miles from quincy, ma to provincetown, cape cod with one goal (aside from making it to the finish in one piece); to raise money and awareness for frontotemporal degenoration (ftd), a rare progressive brain disease that affects an estimated 250,000 americans. what is unique about this group of friends is only two of the twelve people were directly affected by ftd, but the other 10 runners and many friends and supporters, formed a team. this team quickly became a family, and that family set a goal to raise a lofty $15,ooo for ftd. they ended up raising over $25,ooo and along the way did something wonderful for all colors neon and the like.

thank you to all the people that became a part of this amazing neon family of ours. i am eternally grateful
