Welcome to our Moving Day® Team Page -- Team Moxie!
Moxie, our team name, is derived from the name that Vicki gave her very first poodle (and two others thereafter) over 60 years ago while living in Germany. The family could not decide on a name, so they chose "Machts Nichts", which means "it doesn't matter" in German. And, of course, it was shortemed and Americanized over the years to Moxie. Now coming full circle, over 60 years later, the definition of moxie has a far different meaning in the English dictionary. It means "determination"! We have determination (moxie) -- to beat Parkinson's Disease, and at the very least, to make lives better for those with PD!
In the United States, 50,000-60,000 new cases of Parkinson's disease (PD) are diagnosed each year, adding to the one million people who currently have PD.
Join Team Moxie for the local National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) Moving Day® walk, the first nationwide grassroots campaign that spotlights the disease on a national level and gives the chance to raise awareness and funds in our own community. Your support will help NPF continue improving the quality of care for those living with Parkinson's disease. Please help team Moxie to raise awareness and raise fund that willl be used in our own community!
