want to thank our Team Captains, Walkers and Supporters for the incredible
response in allowing us to reach, first, our original goal of $100,000 and now our stretch goal of $125,000 for our inaugural Moving Day® Tampa Bay event! On behalf of our
planning committee and NPF, we are thrilled the momentum continues to build but
know we can't stop here. In the
spirit of setting our aim even higher, we have established a second STRETCH GOAL of $150,000! We look forward to celebrating with all of you on April 11th at the University of South Florida.***

Tampa Bay! Rasheda is the daughter of Muhammad Ali, former champion boxer
living with Parkinson’s disease. She is also the author of a children’s book
about Parkinson’s disease.
“As an advocate and family member of one touched by
Parkinson’s, I believe in what the National Parkinson Foundation’s Moving Day®
event has accomplished,” says Rasheda. “This inspiring event empowers
individuals and families to meet the challenges of living with Parkinson's
