I am participating again this year in Moving Day® Tampa Bay, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation, on Saturday, April 1st, 2017, at the University of South Florida.
All donations remain in the Tampa Bay area to fund Parkinson's treatments and studies through grants. One such grant from last year's donantions was to a program in which I regularly participate, Rock Steady Boxing Tampa Bay. Through this non-contact training program I have been alble to reduce my medications, improve my balanace and core strength and I have even begun to run again! The grant has allowed the dedicated coaches at Rock Steady to expand this opportunity to a much wider group of Parkinson's patients.
Please consider sponsoring me in this year's walk (actually I intend to run the 5K and not walk it). We need to keep providing hope and improvement in the quality of life of Parkinson's patients while the many research studies find a cure.
Thank you so much.
