This is my second year as a participant and team captain for the Moving Day Atlanta walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation on Saturday, November 1st, 2014! I will be walking and raising funds in honor and memory of my grandfather, Ray Pownall, who had Parkinson's and passed away just after last year's walk. This will be the first year that my daughter Lillian, named after her great-grandmother and Ray's late wife, will participate - at only three and a half months!
The event will take place at Centennial Olympic Park (Downtown Atlanta) 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. Whether you join the team and raise funds and/or walk with us, or you donate to any of our team members, we really appreciate your participation and support!
