I am participating in Moving Day Twin Cities, a Walk for Parkinson's, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation Minnesota on May 4, 2013.
The event will take place at Hilde Center and Park in Plymouth, MN. It has been a fun filled morning since the first time I participated in the walk 16 years ago! Many people join us for this event. People with PD, their friends and families, doctors, nurses, social workers, and other people just invested in helping raise money for this cause!
Please consider being a part of my team or sponsoring me, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved.
Why I Got Involved
My grandfather Harold, lived with Parkinsons for over 25 years. I never knew him as never having PD. Despite the disease and the daily obstacles, I never met someone who refused to give up, like he did. Never did PD cause him to give up the activities he loved (bowling, swimming, golf, etc), nor did it diminish his sense of humor (pushing people in to the pool, telling bad jokes, or just laughing), and it never stopped him from getting himself (and me) in trouble!
Even though my grandpa lost the battle in 2005, my family and I remain involved and dedicated to this cause. Please help me reach my goal and donate. The money raised, will go to help better those affected by PD and their daily life!
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 $172 million in care, research and support services.
