I am participating in the Moving Day Chicago walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation on October 19, 2014. I will be walking with Team "Martini Shakers" in memory of my Grandfather Tim Donovan and in honor of my inspiring friend Robert Baitie. https://twitter.com/RobertBaittie.
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 such as yoga, dance, Pilates, Tai Chi, stretching and much more and celebrate the importance of movement in our lives. As you can tell by my team name, we're a fun bunch of people!
Please consider being a part of my team or sponsoring me, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved. It is a cause near and dear to me and I am counting on being to walk beside all of you by that date!!!

Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the National Parkinson Foundation. I hope to see all your smiling faces on October 19!!!
