Mrs. Lisa Comello
I am participating in the Moving Day Pittsburgh Walk, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation Western Pennsylvania Chapter on September 28th, 2013.
The event will take place at Highmark Stadium 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.
Why Get Involved
This Walk is in memory of my wonderful, athletic, handsome, and loving father who passed away from the horrible and dibilitating effects of Parkinson's Disease. This disease took the life and love of life out of my father for 11 years. Not a day goes by that I do not miss him or wish there was something more our family could have done for him. Now, I know this something we can do. I wish my father had this support and research available to him, so I want to do anything I can to help all those affected by this disease. If you can walk with us, thank you; if you can support us with a donation, thank you, if you can't do either, no problem, just say a prayer for us.
Dad, I miss and love you more than you will ever know. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for fighting for as long and as hard as you did; I know part of you fought so hard to be there to walk me down the aisle, and you will never know how much that meant to me. You are me hero! Watch over and protect us from above. Love you forever and ever, Lisa:-)
