The Tanner Foundation for Neurological Diseases exists to enhance the lives of individuals living with neurological diseases through promoting, conducting and sponsoring research and education. The Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 started in 2003 by Dr. Emily Riser to provide educational opportunities to persons with multiple sclerosis, family members and health care professionals. The Foundation is named after Anthony Tanner, a former executive of a health care institution, who has MS. Tony Tanner continues to be a great advocate, philanthropist, and champion for individuals with MS.
In 2015 the Foundation's Board identified a need within our community to broaden the Foundation's mission to include other neurological diseases. A primary goal of the Foundation's work is to provide support to help reduce the financial and psychological burdens experienced by people living with neurological diseases, particularly ALS, MS and Parkinson's Disease.
Over the Edge Birmingham will promote community awareness of neurological diseases. Funds raised through this event will provide vitally needed resources and support for people living with MS, ALS and Parkinson's Disease.
"Over the Edge" gives participants the opportunity to Make a Difference for people living with neurological diseases in our area AND experience the thrill of rappelling while friends, family, and the community watch. The Galleria Tower is this year's exciting venue : http://jwamalls.com/property/galleria-tower/
Local celebrities and media personalities are scheduled to rappel on Friday, May 11th and then our main event will take place on May 12th.
The first ninety individuals who raise a minimum of $1,000 have the opportunity to participate, but you must register first to secure a spot. The registration fee is $100 and goes toward the $1,000 minimum required to rappel. Individuals can raise the minimum through any combination of donations through their page on the website.
Don't delay! Register now to rappel or donate to help others rappel! Your support will provide invaluable assistance to people living with devastating chronic neurological diseases. We appreciate your support!
