I am participating in the Moving Day Walk in memory of my husband Stan, whose long battle with Parkinsons ended in 2008. The proceeds of the Walk benefit the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area, an organization that provides support services, exercise and education for individuals and and families living with PD. The event is on Sunday, November 10th, 2013 and I would LOVE to have your support.
The event will take place at the Washington Nationals Ball Park and Navy Yard 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 hope you will ask others to get involved.
Why Get Involved?
I have been involved with Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area (PFNCA) for about 20 years - while Stan was alive and since then in his memory because the work still needs to be done. Those living with PD need support services and exercise to help them live as well as they can with the disease.
The mission of the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area (PFNCA) is to improve the quality of life for people living with Parkinson's disease, their care-partners and families within the National Capital Area.
PFNCA assists those affected by Parkinson's disease by providing resources, information and support, including:
- Advancing public knowledge of Parkinson's disease
- Support & education programs for patients and their families
- More than 65 exercise, dance, yoga, choir, aerobics and communications classes every month.
30,000 people in the National Capital Area live with Parkinson's disease. This is more than ALS, MS and Muscular Dystrophy combined. We make a difference in their lives and in the lives of their loved ones. Help us to help so many more. PFNCA is a chapter of the National Parkinson Foundation which since 1982 has funded more than $155 million in care, research and support services.
Thank you for helping me reach my very optimistic fundraising goal of $5,000 to support the vital work of our local Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area and the National Parkinson Foundation.
