I am participating in the Moving Day Rochester, NY walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation Greater Rochester Chapter on September 14th, 2014.
Over the 15 years since Louise's diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease, the local NPF chapter has been instrumental in helping us to navigate the disease. Education programs gave us knowledge, exercise programs helped manage symptoms, and support groups gave us resources. Moving Day is a way for us to get others connected to these services and to raise money for new programs.
The event will take place at Monroe Community College Brighton Campus 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.
