LACE UP FOR LUCY

The LaceUp4Lucy campaign was created to honor the memory of my grandmother, Lucille Hakey, who passed away from complications associated with Parkinson’s Disease in February of 2019. Myself, along with two of my close friends Diego and Kayla, represented the Parkinson’s Foundation in the 2019 Marine Corps Marathon. During the course of our 4-month training period, our main goals were to tell my grandmother’s story, while at the same time raising as much awareness as possible for the terrible disease. Not only did all three of us successfully complete the full marathon, but we also raised more than $5,000 for Parkinson’s research. The videos created for this campaign were both filmed and edited by my close friend and colleague Cody Cooke of Digital Hilt Media.
