I am participating in the Moving Day Miami Walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation on October 6th, 2013. Actually, I'm not actually going to be there taking part in the fun below, but rather have decided to assist in the back end of this event, to help it accomplish it's goals! In all honesty, I'm not sure what my role will entail yet, but am incredibly excited to get further involved with the group of people coordinating this great event!
For those of you that may not know Parkinson's has for the past few years played a part in mine and my immediate family's life. It's something that I think we have a family learnt to embrace as not something life paralyzingly, but rather to take advantage of what we have... And also understand how much more difficult it could be. Needless to say, Parkinson's is something we should all thrive to beat, in whatever way we possibly can. For me, that means getting involved and raising as much as possible for research and hopeful treatment, and if we are lucky a cure :) Times like this I guess I have to say, maybe I should have become a doctor to be more helpful, but every little bit counts, however big or small.
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.
