Moving Day (R) Atlanta

Team Rachelle Savoia

Hi all!


Moving Day Atlanta is an event benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation that's being held on Saturday, November 1st, 2014. Moving Day is an event to raise awareness about Parkinson's and help generate funds for the local Atlanta chapter of the foundation. I’m helping organize this event and would love your participation and help to make this a success.


Over 1 million people in the U.S. have been diagnosed with Parkinson's - and my grandfather is one of them - so this is a cause near and dear to my heart. 


The event will take place at Centennial Olympic Park and will be a fun-filled, family-friendly event for all ages and abilities. In addition to the 5K walk, there will be a variety of movement activities yoga, dance, Pilates, Tai Chi, stretching and much more and celebrate the importance of movement in our lives.


For anyone Atlanta-based, please consider being a part of my team and joining me for the walk - I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved too!


Additionally, I am trying to raise $1500 for the organization, so any and all donations are welcome and much appreciated! Collectively, the Atlanta chapter is trying to raise over $170,000 this year – so every bit helps!


Info about the organization:

The National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) continues to bring help and hope to the estimated one million people in the United States, four to six million worldwide, who are living with Parkinson’s disease. NPF is the only organization with a singular focus on improving the quality of care in Parkinson’s disease. NPF programs reach more than one million people a year through its network of 39 chapters, 43 Centers of Excellence and 900 support groups. Since 1982, NPF has funded more than $180 million in care, research and support services.



Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the National Parkinson Foundation.
