Big Red

Welcome to our Moving Day® Team Page! Team Big Red was created on behalf and in loving memory of Sandra Perkins. She battled with Parkinson's for nearly a decade and passed away on April 1, 2014 from complications of pneumonia. Although she struggled with managing her illness, she never lost her vibrancy or loving spirit. She touched the lives of many youths during her long and rewarding career as an English teacher and had a passion for all things antique or colorful. She was known as Red to her husband; mom to her son; Grandi to her grandchildren; Sandi to most; and an angel to everyone. We carry her memory in our hearts; may she rest in peace.

 

This team walks in an effort to raise money for the National Parkinson Foundation in hope that other families affected by this disease will one day see a cure for their loved one.

 

In the United States, 50,000-60,000 new cases of Parkinson's disease (PD) are diagnosed each year, adding to the one million people who currently have PD.

 

Join our team for the local National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) Moving Day® walk, the first nationwide grassroots campaign that spotlights the disease on a national level and gives the chance to raise awareness and funds in our own community. Your support will help NPF continue improving the quality of care for those living with Parkinson's disease.
