As you know, Doug lost his struggle with Parkinson’s Disease this past summer after a 10 year journey which in his words “gave us time”. Time to live, time to love, time to enjoy our family and friends! Time to enjoy the happiness of Darcy's and Darren’s wedding. We made the most of it. As a tribute to Doug and the many others that take this difficult path, our family has created a team in his memory for "Moving Day DC". I will be joining Darcy and her friends and other family members. This walk is in the DC area on Sunday, November 10 at 10:00am, sponsored by the National Parkinson Foundation. It is an easy 2 mile walk that starts and finishes at the Washington Nationals Stadium. I know that very few of you, if any, will be in the DC area that day, but I know your spirit will be as well as your memory of a great guy.
You can help us reach our goal of raising $1,000 for the NPF! I know many of you have provided generous donations to Parkinson’s charities over the last few months in memory of Doug. Thank you. We’ve started “Team Marsh Hawk” in memory of Doug. Marsh Hawk is the name of our family house on Cape Cod that Doug and I built together from the ground up. That was Doug’s favorite place to sit on the deck and look out over the marsh and Cape Cod Bay. It is there that we would frequently see the marsh hawks soar overhead.
PD has touched the lives of too many friends and acquaintences, and every small donation and show of support will help get us one step closer to finding a cure and give hope to those affected.
Thanks so much. Find a special memory to enjoy on November 10th. There are many.
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 yoga, dance, Pilates, Tai Chi, stretching and much more and celebrate the importance of movement in our lives.
Please consider being a part of our team or sponsoring me, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved.
