For my bat mitzvah project, I am participating in the Moving Day Chicago Walk event on Sunday, October 19th, 2014. The walk means a lot to me because my grandpa has Parkinson's disease and struggles with it everyday. Parkinson's is a disease that makes your muscles weaker and shakier. We named our team "Grandpa G" because we are raising money for him and others who suffer from Parkinson's. My goal is for the team to raise $1,500 dollars towards finding a cure and I hope to reach and exceed my goal.
It will be a fun-filled, family-friendly event for all ages and abilities and will help raise money for the National Parkinson Foundation.
With your support we can help the foundation's mission to improve the quality of care for people with Parkinson's disease through research, education and outreach. I know you understand the importance of an event that raises money for such an important cause.
No matter what you can afford, every dollar counts! So please make a donation on my behalf. Alternatively, if you would prefer, you can join my team or register as an individual.
Thank you so much for all of your support,
