Ellen and David and Pablo
I am participating in the Moving Day NC Triangle Walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation. This event is important to me as our family lives with Parkinson's. Ny husband, Bill, was diagnosed with PD five years ago at the age of 73. In addition, one of Bill's younger brothers, now deceased, was diagnosed with Parkinson's at age 62, and my brother, age 85, has Parkinson's. PD has also impacted the lives of some of our friends.
The Moving Day NC Triangle Walk will take place at Koka Booth Amphitheatre (8003 Regency Parkway, Cary, NC 27518) on the morning of Saturday, November 2, 2013, starting at 9:00 a.m. It 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. Although Moving Days for Parkinson's are held at various sites around the country, this is the very first time that a Moving Day has been held in North Carolina.
Please consider being a part of our team or sponsoring me, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved.
