Proceeds to the Theodora Gavrielidis Fund and Karen Condron Spirit Foundation.


Purpose

In recognition of her love of life, her art and drive during her 8 year ordeal with ALS, the MDA Wings Over Wall Street fundraiser awarded Karen their prestigious Spirit Award.

Karen Condron, mother of five, entrepreneur, volunteer, runner, and watercolor artist, was diagnosed with ALS in 2013.
It started two years earlier with slurred speech. By 2014, Karen couldn’t speak at all.
She switched to emails, she continued to go volunteer meetings; she exercised on her pedal pump; and she expressed her feelings through her vibrant watercolor paintings.
As a consummate telephone and trade show salesperson for nearly 30 years, Karen refused to give up “her Voice.”

The Karen Condron Spirit Foundation was established to scale up her Voice into Action.

The Karen Condron Spirit Foundation Story

Karen's Inspiration

Karen’s ALS started with slurred words. Then the words evolved into a diagnosis: Bulbar-Onset ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).

Now those hopeless, incapacitating words have become fighting words.

We studied this disease. Why was there no cure? Why no effective ways to slow it down? Who was studying it and what was their approach? We found the Robert Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins it changed our lives. They told us that what was needed most of all was truly reliable funding year after year so that new big data research methods could analyze and guide meaningful results.

In response we established two corporations,

First, a 501(c)(3) foundation named the Karen Condron Spirit Foundation to honor Karen’s love of life, her art and her drive to win and beat ALS. Donations to the Foundation and money from the sale of her watercolors will go directly to support ALS research.

Second, a business entity to fund the Foundation. It is a distributor services business drawing on our family’s three decades of experience in this the promotional products industry. After tax proceeds will be used to fund Foundation donations to accelerate a cure, provide patient support, and community outreach. Although our focus is ALS, the Center shares profits with our business partners’ charities to build a broad community base and help everyone.

The Trustees also established a business entity to fund the Foundation. It is a promotional products business drawing on our family’s three decades of experience in this industry. After tax proceeds will be used to fund Foundation donations to accelerate a cure.
