Thank you for considering a donation or larger sponsorship gift to support the Nashua Dystance4Dystonia 5K Walk/Run planned for May 15, 2022 at Mine Falls Park. Donations at every level are appreciated and support the important efforts of NH native and race organizer Amanda Lockhead to raise funds to find a dystonia cure.
What is Life with Dystonia Like? Dystonia affects every aspect of a person’s life: how they move, how they perceive themselves, their education and career paths, their social interactions, and their relationships. At a young age, race organizer Amanda Lockhead started to have shoulder problems. She lived for years in pain as her parents visited different doctors and she tried different treatments. Finally at the age of 22, she was diagnosed by a neurologist with dystonia. Amanda’s journey to finding answers was long and painful. She is committed to using this event as a platform to inform the public about dystonia leading to more accurate diagnosis and to offer a better path to treatment and quality of life for those with dystonia.
