I am participating in the Moving Day Rome, GA Walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation Georgia Chapter on October 26th, 2013.
The event will take place at State Mutual Stadium, Home of the Rome Braves, 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.
My husband, Doyle Pruitt was diagnosed in September 2000 with Young Onset Parkinson's disease at the age of 48. He had to come out of work on disability in 2003. Over the last 10 years we have watched him decline and now he is totally in a wheelchair. My son was 8 when his dad was diagnosed so he has had to deal with things that kids shouldn't have to deal with. We are walking so that maybe they can find a cure so others won't have to go through this. Without God, my family and friends we would not be able to endure. Thank you for your help and prayers.
