I participated in the Moving Day Atlanta Walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation on November 9th, 2013, in honor of my father, Ray Pownall and my Uncle, Roy Pownall. It was a good day.
Many, many years ago, my Uncle Roy, was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease. My father has also lived with the disease for many years. Having watched their struggles, I feel a need to do something to help others in this situation. National Parkinson Foundation has been a valuable resource to me for information and provides information and support for other people living with Parkinsons and those who love them. They also fund research to find ways to live well with the disease, and hopefully, someday to find a cure. That's why I'm participating.
The event took place at the Georgia Tech Campus and was fun-filled, family-friendly event for all ages and abilities. We just enjoyed honoring our loved ones and being together, as a family.
To all, who suported us, you were a part of my my family team. Thank you so very much for your support of me, my father, my uncle, my family and those living with Parkinson Disease.
When do we want a cure? Yesterday!
Thanks to National Parkinson Foundation for the walk, for supporting our family and all of the other families touched by this disease.

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