For a Cure
A Journey of Hope across Spain to raise awareness and funds for Sturge-Weber Syndrome research
This August Al DeCesaris will take on an exciting new endeavor in honor of his niece Jenna and all those living with Sturge-Weber Syndrome (SWS). His 30-day, 555-mile journey will begin on August 1st in southwestern France at the base of the Pyrenees Mountains and have him hiking the Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James) across the Iberian Peninsula to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain before reaching his final destination of Cape Finesterre overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Through his efforts and with your support we will create awareness about this devastating neurological disorder and raise funds for medical research to help further the efforts to find a cure.
