Mike Tokito of The Oregonian reports that former Portland Trail Blazers forward Brian Grant had a very successful fundraiser in his ongoing effort to combat Parkinson's disease... ------------------------- On Sunday and Monday, the former Trail Blazers forward held his second annual Shake It Till We Make It fund-raising event. Organizers announced that this year's version had raised $500,000 to battle Parkinson's, helped by a $100,000 check a donor handed Grant at Sunday's dinner and gala at the Rose Garden. According to event organizers, the donation was made by the family of Vivian Longdon in her memory. Part of the proceeds will help the Brian Grant Foundation run a new website, poweringforward.org, where patients and caregivers can go for inspiration and information about the day-to-day challenges of living with Parkinson's. The disease is a brain disorder that saps a person's ability to control his movements, often resulting in uncontrollable shaking and tremors. ------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
