Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.


Dear Friends & Family,

On August 12, I will be participating in the Falmouth Road Race and raising funds to support the MINDlink Foundation at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.

     As many of you know my father, brother, aunts, uncles, and now cousins are suffering or have suffered from Machado Josephs Disease, also known as MJD & Ataxia.  MJD is a rare inherited neurodegenerative disease. Unfortunately, most forms of ataxia are chronic and progressive with no cure and few treatments. Because MJD is such a rare disease, funding for research is very limited. As a result, I am committed to raise funds and support the MINDlink foundation.

MINDlink provides support for Dr. Jeremy Schmahmann and his team in research for finding a cure and treatment for the many that suffer from neurodegenerative diseases such as MJD.  I am so grateful that I am capable of helping and bringing awareness and support for the MINDlink foundation.

I hope that you will help me in my efforts to raise funds. Your contribution in any amount is greatly appreciated. It is my sincere hope to enhance the potential to help those afflicted with the Machado Josephs Disease and other debilitating neurological disorders…

I thank you and my family thanks you…


Lots of Love,

Bela Collins
