I am participating in Moving Day Twin Cities, a walk for Parkinson's, on May 3, 2014, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation Minnesota.
This year will be a special walk for my family as we are honoring my Father. He passed away on May 7, 2013 after a courageous 15 year battle with PD. We are walking to show our support and honor to all PD FAMILIES! We are hoping to raise funds, awareness, and support for those have been diagnosed with PD as well as those who care and love for these patients. I have witnessed first hand the debiliating effects of this disease; not only the patients but also the caregivers and families. We want to help and support! We know DAD would want us too!!! He was a very MODEST MAN-but we want TEAM DON to be #1!Please HELP us fight PARKINSON'S 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.
Please consider being a part of my team or sponsoring me, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved.
