This June marks the second annual Moving Day - Cleveland, put on by the National Parkinson Foundation. My family did the walk last year in memory of my father, and our 'Poppi', which was the nickname our kids gave him. My dad, Ned Siess, passed away in Ocotober 2015. He fought Parkinson's for over 20 years. I was there alongside him every step of the way, but I never wanted it to stop there. This is one way that my family and I can continue to support not only with him, but others as well, as we raise awareness and fundraising support for Parkinson's disease. We participated last year, which was the first Moving Day in Cleveland. It was a great success, raising over $150,000 and far exceeding the first year goal by NPF.
It was such a meaninful experience, that this year I am actually on the committee to help with the event planning for 2017. It was an opportunity that I saw to be even more of a part of something special. Bringing our team back is just the first step. There is a lot of work to do and my family and i appreciate your thoughtfulness and kindness. Thank you!
Why Move for Moving Day?
Did you know that someone is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease every 9 minutes in the United States? No one should have to face Parkinson’s alone. That is why the National Parkinson Foundation provides a community of support to give people the resources and help they need to live well with Parkinson’s.
Support our mission to help every person diagnosed with Parkinson's live their best possible life now. Your gift will help us fund better research, better treatment and better lives.
