This is my third year working on the committee for Moving Day Tampa Bay! I'm so excited for another active, fun, and informative day benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation, on Saturday, April 1st, 2017, at the University of South Florida.
The reason I walk is for my Dad, Mike (a retired auto body man...so forgive the reference to Mechanics, but hey, it works, right!). My dad has had Parkinson's for over 25 years and is still doing it all. He and my Mom are such a great team and I truly believe it's a huge reason why my dad is still so active and doing well after living with this disease for so long. Orgnizations like NPF support not only the patient, but the caregivers/families, as well. And I'm so excited to be here in Tampa one more year to support such a great event like Moving Day and by extension, my parents.
After working with and volunteering for NPF at various Parkinson's related events, I've been able to see first hand the wonderful effect NPF has had on the Parkinson's community. They truly provide so many resources and tools to both the families, caregivers, and the patient.
This particular event will be a fun-filled, family-friendly event for all ages and abilities. We will be able to enjoy a variety of movement activities like yoga, dance, Pilates, Tai Chi, boxing, stretching and much more, all celebrating the importance of movement in our lives.
**Please consider being a part of my team or sponsoring me, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved.
Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the National Parkinson Foundation!
