I am participating in the Moving Day Columbus, OH Walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation Central & Southeast Ohio Chapter on September 29th, 2013.
My grandfather, Jerry Meyer, is my inspiration for walking for this cause. My grandfather was invincible in my eyes. He served his country as a US Marine. In my eyes there was nothing that would ever be able to take my grandfather down. However, I learned all to soon that this was not true. After my grandmother passed I watched Parkinson's disease do what I thought was impossible. I watched my grandfather go from the strongest man I knew to being in terrible pain and unable to do anything on his own. It was heartbreaking to see this transformation. I hope they find a cure for this horrible disease so that no one has to experience it personally or watch a loved one suffer from it as we did.
The event will take place at Columbus Crew Stadium and will be a fun-filled, family-friendly event for all ages and abilities. We will be able to enjoy a variety of movement activities yoga, dance, Pilates, Tai Chi, stretching and much more and celebrate 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.
