I am participating in the Moving Day Atlanta Walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation on November 9th, 2013.
The event will take place at the Georgia Tech 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.
Why Get Involved
I could give you the normal spill about how the money helps research and all the statistical data about Parkinson's Disease, and you will find that below this paragraph. But, I am asking you get involved for one fundamental reason. - I HAVE PARKINSON'S DISEASE and it SUCKS!!
It doesn't care what age you are, what you have planned in your life, what your goals and dreams are. It doesn't care. It slowly robs you of your freedom. It steals from you your independance. It drains your energy, it never stops, it continues to progress.
So we have to fight back, eveyday, every hour, every moment we have to fight back. To raise money, to raise awareness. We have to keep moving, keep fighting, keep on doing everything we can to beat this disease, and that is where you can help.
Please join me as part of Team BeachMagic, either as a participant and walker or as a contributor to my fight. Yeah, its PERSONAL! I may not beat this disease, but its not going to beat me. With your help we will one day see a cure.
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. NPF is the only organization with a singular focus on improving the quality of care in Parkinson’s disease. NPF programs reach more than one million people a year through its network of 39 chapters, 43 Centers of Excellence and 900 support groups. Since 1982, NPF has funded more than $172 million in care, research and support services.
Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the National Parkinson Foundation.
