Recently, I was introduced to an amazing doctor who was diagnosed with Parkinson's. He is the parent of a good friend of mine, and he continues to have a growing influence on my life every day, from mentoring me as a future physician to simply be a role model for how to live your life. But what stands out to me the most about this individual is his generosity. Never before had I heard so many stories from others about how a single person helped them out, literally opened the doors of their home, or lent a helping hand in a time of need. Now it's my turn to pay it forward and do what I can for him and his daily battle against Parkinson's. Please consider being a part of my team or sponsoring me, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved. Please donate, whatever amount, to helping myself and the National Parkinson's Foundation in supporting my mentor. Thank you, and feel free to read more details below.
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. 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.
Why Get Involved
The National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) continues to bring help and hope to the estimated one million people in the United States, four to six million worldwide, who are living with Parkinson’s disease.
Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the National Parkinson Foundation.
