I am participating in Moving Day Twin Cities, a walk for Parkinson's, on May 3, 2014, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation Minnesota. I participate in this walk every year in the hopes that we are one day able to find a cure for Parkinson's, a disease that greatly affected our family.
My dad was diagnosed young with this devastating disease, and as a family we worked to make sure that we would not let it devastate us. My dad fought courageously for many years and showed us by example how to live a life that was truly lived.
He valued happiness and spread it where ever he went. He loved to laugh and did not let this disease stop him from doing anything.
Please consider making a donation to this cause close to my heart and my family's heart. It would also be awesome if you would like to come out and join us on May 3rd for a morning of fun and celebration of the hope of one day finding a cure for this disease!
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.
Thank you in advance for your support!
