November 5,2011 | Houston We Have A Mission | League City
The KiMe Fund was established in 2010 with a mission to find a cure for Parkinson’s by funding research that have the best chance for a cure. Steve Hodges, who grew up in the Houston area, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s at age 48. Since that overwhelming day, Steve decided to establish the KiMe fund. Shorthand for his two daughters, Kim and Megan, KiMe is symbolic of the drive to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease. In Hodges’ own words, “There will be a cure for Parkinson’s Disease within my lifetime”.
Houston We Have a Mission was another step for this national organization to move toward their goal. Filled with passionate commitment the event organizers put together a fun filled event while raising funds for their cause.
Astronaut Michael ‘Rich’ Clifford was the surprise guest for the evening. Diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1994, Clifford was determined to continue on with his dream of space travel. Rich Clifford’s story will be told through a documentary entitled ‘The Astronaut’s Secret’. The documentary will explain how and why NASA and Clifford kept his secret from more than 17years. Now, Clifford’s mission is to increase global understanding and awareness of Parkinson’s Disease.
Listen in with Talk of the Bay as we visit with Steve Hodges and Rich Clifford at Houston We Have A Mission. Together these two strong willed and very determined gentlemen will march together to accomplish each of their goals.
KiMe’s non-profit status is established through the East Tennessee Foundation, a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization, as well as its association with the Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund. Kim’s Board of Directors is comprised of nine members located in four states with specialties in Medicine, Business, Finance, and Fundraising.
