I am participating in the Moving Day NC Triangle Walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation on November 2nd, 2013. In 2011 my husband Chuck Hallford was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. At first the news was devastating, but soon we learned that so much progress has been made in the treatment of PD through organizations such at the National Parkinson Foundation and research around the world. We recently moved to the Durham, NC area in order to participate more in activities such as Moving Day and to be closer to a big medical center, such as Duke, that specializes in Movement Disorders.
Moving Day will take place at Koka Booth Amphitheatre (Cary, NC) 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. Chuck and I have learned that exercise is the main key to staying healthy on all fronts but especially with PD.
Please consider being a part of our Hillsborough team or sponsoring Chuck and me. I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved.
