I am participating in the Moving Day Walk that benefits the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area on 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 yoga, dance, Pilates, Tai Chi, stretching and much more and celebrate the importance of movement in our lives. Last year was my first year actively participating and did I ever learn and have fun at the same time.
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?
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. We make a difference in their lives and in the lives of their loved ones. As you know, Len has Parkinson's disease. So does the husband of a dear friend of mine. And I know others with Parkinson's. 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.
Thank you 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. Of course, please feel free to pass this on to others.
