We Fulghums are participating in the Moving Day Walk, benefiting the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area, this coming Saturday, Nov. 10, 2013.
The event will take place at the Nationals Park 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 such as yoga, dance, Pilates, Tai Chi, stretching as well as an optional 2 mile walk to celebrate the importance of movement in our lives.
Please consider being a part of our team or sponsoring us, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved.
Why Get Involved?
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 $172 million in care, research and support services.
Personally, Diana benefits from the PFNCA every week when she attends a dance class fully sponsored by the PFNCA and Talley gets support and guidance from the PFNCA in leading a Parkinson's support group which has approximately 40 patients and their care partners in attendance each month. PFNCA has been a terrific resource for us as well as so many others with Parkinsons.
Thanks for helping us reach our fundraising goal of $500.00 to support the vital work of the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area and the National Parkinson Foundation. It really does help!
