Welcome to our Moving Day® Team Page!
In the United States, 50,000-60,000 new cases of Parkinson's disease (PD) are diagnosed each year, adding to the one million people who currently have PD.
At St. Luke's Mission of Mercy, we have been touched in a personal way by this disease. Norm Paolini, our Co-Founder and Co-Director was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease two years ago. We have all become more familiar with this disease, it's symptoms and and the impact it can have on those who are diagnosed with it and their families.
We have also seen, as we do every day at St. Luke's, how the love and mercy of God and the prayers and support of family and friends can help us overcome any obstacle. We are all inspired by Norm's faith and trust in God and his patient endurance of the effects of this disease.
We were inspired to raise money for the Parkinson Foundation by starting a team in Norm's honor. That is why we are calling our team Stormin' for Norman. Please help us raise money so we can help The Parkinson Foundation find more effective treatments and someday, a cure for this disease.
Join our team for the local National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) Moving Day® walk, the first nationwide grassroots campaign that spotlights the disease on a national level and gives the chance to raise awareness and funds in our own community. Your support will help NPF continue improving the quality of care for those living with Parkinson's disease.
