Inspired by her husband who was diagnosed with ITP in 2004, celebrated remission in 2015 and impressed by the work of PDSA, Cheri Zimmerman is determined to Keep Calm and Beat ITP. Help her meet her goal of $5,000 as she hits the ground running for a cure again in 2017!
On May 15, 2016 Alexandra Kruse will hit the pavement to raise awareness for ITP and support an organization near and dear to her heart.
Read more from Alex about how she has been affected by ITP throughout her life.
On January 17, 2016 Cheri Zimmerman completed the Key West Half Marathon! Cheri raised over $4,000 and connected 2 other people affected by ITP to PDSA! That’s how we make the World of ITP a more manageable place to be – TOGETHER!
From organizing fundraising 5km walk/runs to running half and now a full marathon in support of ITP awareness and PDSA, I have managed to create more positive experiences with this disease than negative ones.
This year I hope to raise at least $1,000 for PDSA by running my first marathon, which will be the second biggest challenge of my life! So I ask for your help! This organization does so much for ITP patients, they deserve all the support they can get and every little bit counts.

Donations & More Information
Please look at my new Fitness Challenge for September! It's to raise awareness for ITP. September is ITP Awareness month and I'm trying to do my part in helping.
My daughter is on the more positive end of this disorder, and for that we are eternally grateful. My husband and I would like you to join us in spreading the word about ITP and help us raise funds for PDSA to help others with information, support, & research.
With love, Melinda
