I am participating in the Moving Day Rome, GA Walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation Georgia Chapter on October 26th, 2013.
The reason I walk:
Sarah Hutchins was a saint. When I met Sarah she had already retired from teaching, had raised 3 great kids and 1 wonderful grandson, my husband. Sarah taught me how to love my husband, how to clean, how to deal with countless interruptions to the daily plan, and still get all the work finished by the end of the day. She taught me the importance of having the meal ready for the men and the patience to keep it warm when they were late. When I was overwhelmed she would say "it just came to pass" meaning that troubles always come to an end. Sarah's trouble with Parkinson's and Alzheimer's came to an end on November 1, 2010. She will be greatly missed by many.
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.
