Hello Family & Friends,
As many of you know, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease five years ago.
Parkinson's disease has changed my life in many ways - at home, at work, everywhere. Having this disease has changed how I live daily. Many of the simple things I used to be able to do quite easily, such as tying a tie or buttoning a shirt, have become increasingly challenging.
I have been extremely fortunate to have the support of my family, co-workers, and other friends to help me continue to live a happy and productive life.
Exercise is one of the most important parts of my treatment, so I try to do some each day.
I am so grateful to be able to keep moving, so to celebrate I am participating in the Moving Day Columbus walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation Central & Southeast Ohio Chapter on September 28th, 2014.
The event will take place at The Columbus Crew Stadium and will be a fun-filled, family-friendly event for all ages and abilities. Parker, my employer, is a Gold Sponsor.
Please consider being a part of my team or sponsoring me. It would be great to have some Cleveland area friends attend, and I'd be happy to help coordinate transportation if needed.
It is estimated that 1 million people in the U.S. have Parkinson's disease with about 50,000-60,000 new cases diagnosed nationally each year.
Please help me move to beat Parkinson's! Thanks - Bill
