I am participating in the Pittsburgh Moving Day Walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation Western Pennsylvania Chapter on Sept. 28, 2013. This day will be the second annual walk for my Father with two very special differences. 9/28 is also my Mother's Birthday and this year I will walk as a newly engaged and very much in love participant. Rich is also a part of my team for this walk and in life. Rich loves my dad and dreams (as I do) that a cure is right around the corner.
The event will take place at North Shore Riverwalk at Heinz Field 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. Please see my story below....
My father was diagnosed with Parkinson's a few years ago and he is fighting it with every fiber of his being, He believes in the power of prayer and fights it every day with God by his side. Saturday 9/28/13 my dad, Rich and I walk together to stare it down, kick it back and deny it's very existence in our lives!
We are trying desperately to raise $300.00 by Friday 9/27/13 so we can walk in solidarity with others who have this and their family members/friends that support them. Seeing my dad walk last year and being by his side with every step meant everything to me.
Please help with any amount you can give so we can fight this ugly disease monetarily and in spirit. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and my fathers heart as well!
Today...you have made a difference in the life of another. God Bless you!
