I am participating in the Moving Day Kansas City walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation Heartland, on June 14, 2014. I am walking in honor of a wonderful woman, Dorothy Perlik, who is vibrant, sharp-as-a-tack, and kind-hearted. Dorothy is also Mom to one of my best friends, Andrea Perlik. Our team is named Dancing for Dorothy because, in her younger years, Dorothy loved to dance. Unfortunately a side effect of Parkinson's is loss of balance and so Dorothy doesn't get to dance as much.
Please consider being a part of my team or sponsoring me. No amount is too small, and every bit helps! Last year, Dancing for Dorothy won the Best Dressed award. The year before we won the First Team Registered award. This year we would like to win one of the fundraising awards! Your support is greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!
