I am participating in the Moving Day Tallahassee, FL Walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation North Florida on May 17, 2014.
I've started this team in memory of my grandma, Helen Patchett. She was diagnosed in the 1970's and passed away in December 2006. I never knew her without PD. She lived with joy, peace, and love throughout her life. She was an inspiration to everyone she encountered. I know without a shadow of a doubt she attributed it to the personal relationship she had with God through Jesus Christ and the support and love of her devoted husband and family. She spent every moment she could serving others, playing with the grandkids, and laughing. She is one of my heroes. Please join me in honoring her memory through participation or donation.
The event will take place at Southwood Residential Association 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. If you'd like to join my team or sponsor me in memory or honor of a Parkinson's patient, please let me know your story so I can share it with our supporters.
