In April, 2012 my mom was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. The more I have learned about this disease the more I understand why raising money for research is essential. While great strides have been made since the time when my maternal great-grandfather was afflicted with Parkinson's, there is still so much that is unknown.
For her Bat Mitzvah project last year, my niece Shelby Levine, set up "Team Levine" to participate in the Moving Day Walk, benefiting the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area. I am happy to join her team again to help raise money for this worthy cause.
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.
I'm just a little behind here in asking for donations as the walk is Sunday, November 10. Yes that is this weekend. Please consider sponsoring me so that together we can MOVE towards a cure.
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 $164 million in care, research and support services.
Thank you in advance for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area and the National Parkinson Foundation.
