My husband, Jeremy, was diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinsons Disease just a year ago at the age of 37. It has been a roller coaster year as we begin to understand what this diagnosis means for Jeremy, our family, and our future. We choose to take a stand and fight for continued education, additional research, new treatments, and a CURE for PD. One way I'm working to make this happen is by participating in the Moving Day Kansas City Walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation Heartland on June 15, 2013.
The event will take place at the Village Shopping Center, Prairie Village 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 yoga, dance, Pilates, Tai Chi, stretching and much more and celebrate the importance of movement in our lives.
Please consider being a part of my team or sponsoring me, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved.
