Keynote - Allison Toepperwein

Allison Toepperwein is our keynote speaker at the 2017 HOPE Conference.

About Allison: 

By the time Allison Toepperwein was diagnosed at the end of 2014, she weighed only 100 pounds at 5’7”. She stood slouched over as if she had osteoporosis. She lost complete control of her left arm. She lost the ability to type. She ran into every door frame she walked through. She dragged her left foot. She began to slur when speaking, her name in particular. She couldn’t cut her daughter’s meat and began choking whenever she ate or drank. She was only 37 years old, and a newly single mom.
 
Two months after Allison was diagnosed, she went to see a Movement Disorder Specialist who gave advice that she took to heart. Exercise is THE ONLY thing proven to slow the progression of Parkinson’s. Allison began going to her local high school track and exercising daily. She found that every time she went to the track, she slept better, had more energy, her balance improved and anxiety diminished. By the end of 2015, she ran her very first obstacle course race by herself. That race led her to compete twice on American Ninja Warrior.
