Dad Runs Marathon to Help Kids with Hemiplegia

Philadelphia-Marathon-Run-For-Pediatric-StrokeDavid Sexton is a software development manager who lives in Westfield, N.J., with his wife, their daughter and son. When his son was found to have cerebral palsy five year ago, he turned to writing as a way to sort out his thoughts. David isn’t stopping with just writing – he’s running in the Philadelphia Marathon this weekend in an effort to raise funds for the Children’s Hemiplegia and Stroke Association (CHASA). David says CHASA has been invaluable in helping provide support, resources, and knowledge about hemiplegia. Support CHASA and encourage this great dad to keep moving for the cause by donating here. On that same page, you’ll find links to the inspirational blog posts written by David about his family’s experiences with  having a son with hemiplegic cerebral palsy and a pediatric stroke diagnosis.
