When I was diagnosed with Parkinson's last year, I started looking for more information and quickly found the National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) website and it's wealth of information and programs for patients. I also found that many Parkinson Patients have blog sites with beneficial information about their journey down the Parkinson's path including Tremors in the Universe by Robert Baittie. I am proud to join Robert's team, the Martini Shakers as an honorary co-captain from the State of Tennessee.
Join me in supporting the Moving Day Chicago walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation on October 19, 2014.
The event will take place at the Grove 2 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.
Please consider being a part of my team or sponsoring me, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved.
