The Smith Family
I am participating in the Moving Day Walk, benefiting the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area on Nov. 10, 2013.
Mr. Paicos was my teacher at St. Vincent Pallotti High School. I saw him almost every day for two years straight. He was a great teacher both inside the classroom and outside. I remember he always kept an eye out for his students. Multiple times he would chase boys away from me when he would see them talking to me in the halls and I look back and laugh while silently thanking him. He truly is a great man, dedicated to both his family & his work. He deserves the best and I believe if we work a bit harder we can help fund the research to help cure this disease, helps those affected fight it daily, as well as get others interested in the cause.
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 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

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.
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.
