Team On The Move!

 

Goldstein/Goodman - Captains Joel Goldstein & Reed Goodman

The Goldstein/Goodman team is excited to be part of the inaugural year of Moving Day® Boston. We hope to make it a wildly successful event. My brother was recently diagnosed with Parkinsons disease (PD) and this has brought into sharp focus and priority the challenges that people face with the disease and the fact that we need to do more to support people living with the disease.  Given the size of the population impacted by PD in the greater New England area as well as the excellence of our medical centers and biotech and pharma research companies located here, we feel uniquely situated to increase the awareness of PD and of the need for services to help patients, families and caregivers.  For more on this GREAT team click here


People Who Move Change The World.fw.pngMoving Day® is the National Parkinson Foundation’s annual fundraising walk/run event. It is a fun and inspiring fundraising event that unites families, friends and communities both large and small in the fight against Parkinson’s disease. This celebration of movement will feature a family friendly walk course, a kids area, a caregivers relaxation tent and a special Movement Pavilion featuring yoga, dance, Tai Chi, Pilates, etc. all proven to help manage the symptoms of PD.


NPF Center of ExcellenceMoving Day® Boston would like to thank our two local Centers of Excellence (COE), Massachusetts General Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center for their support.

 

Moving Day® markets partner with their local Centers of Excellence to help spread the word in their communities. By inviting NPF staff to attend COE support groups and programs, we are able to reach a large group of patients and caregivers to share Moving Day information as well as NPF resources with.

The COE’s also help to promote Moving Day by including information in their patient rooms and newsletters and by sending out an annual letter to each family promoting their involvement. Additionally, the COE will have an onsite presence at Moving Day events to welcome their patients and share their latest research and other information.Visit the Massachusetts General Hospital team page here and the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center team page here.

 

It will be 'A day to move, a day to move others, a day that moves YOU!'
