Ms. Melissa Falk
I am participating in the "Chicago Moving Day Walk/Run" event, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation on Sunday, Oct. 20, 2013.
I am walking and volunteering as a committee member for this important event, in honor of my mother, Gladys Falk, who passed away in 2010 from complications related to Parkinson's Disease.
The event will take place at Lincoln 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.
**A portion of the total funds raised will go towards creating a local Chicago Chapter of the National Parkinson Foundation which is greatly needed here.
Please consider being a part of my team, sponsoring my team, creating a Family & Friends Team of your own or simply being a volunteer on October 20, 2013, for MOVING DAY in Chicago.
