I am participating in Moving Day Twin Cities, a walk for Parkinson's, on May 3, 2014, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation Minnesota.
I am doing this for my Mom Delsie and my Grandma Ann, both passed from this horrible sickness. Watching what they both went thru with Parkinsons was a horrible thing. We really need to do all we can to find a cure for this so nobody else has to go thru what they did.
Growing up I spent lots of time helping my Grandma Ann cook for wedding and working in garden. Seeing her lose control with Parkinsons was the most heart breaking thing that could have happen, untill my Mom Delsie was diagnosed with it also. She was the most wonderful careing person you could have met, parkinsons took hold quick and she lost hope for anything because of the shakes she hated going out (except to play Bingo).
This cause is very important to me and my family and would mean the world knowing we made a difference in helping find a cure.
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.
