I am participating in the Moving Day Miami walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation on October 5th, 2014.
WHY?.... My father has had Parkinson's Disease since he was very young, and I have always thought what is the best way to help. Personally, supporting my family, but thiking bigger, WE MUST DO:
1. The best we can to support organizations like NPF in order to find answers for patients like my father, and
2. The best we can to find the resources to help the caregivers.
I do not do or support many fundraisers; however, Parkinson's is the exception. It's something personal, and every year I join this event and contribute some.
The event will take place at Bayfront Park 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.

Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the National Parkinson Foundation.
