I am participating in Moving Day Twin Cities, a walk for Parkinson's, on May 3, 2014, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation Minnesota. As some of you may know my father Fred, has pre Parkinsons and is doing his best to manage this disease by remaining active. He has started walking 3 days per week and is still able to participate in a game of Pickle Ball now and then. My family is part of Team Fred and we are hoping to raise money for this worth while cause.
The event will take place at Hilde Performance Center and Park 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.
