Dear Family and Friends,
I am participating in the Moving Day Walk, benefiting the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area on Nov. 10, 2013, in honor of my brother, Jim Anderson, who was diagnosed with Parkinsons in 2010.
The event will take place at the Nationals Park at 8:30am 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.
Parkinsons is a debilitating disease and knows no boundaries when it strikes the innocent. The disease attacks the central nervous system and makes things such as simple movement, balance, walking, dressing, swallowing, talking, and thinking a challenge. It places a defying grip on those it attacks as it progressively disfigures and transforms their life. Sadly, there is no cure.
Please consider joining Team Jimbo or make a donation. In addition to getting exercise and having fun, you will be helping to raise money for the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital area. Team Jimbo’s fundraising goal is $8,000. Let’s show Jim just how SUPER he is and help the foundation’s mission to improve the quality of care for those stricken with Parkinsons through research, education, and outreach.

If you prefer to mail a check, please make it out to Parkinson’s Foundation of the National Capital Area, include Team Jimbo in the reference field and mail it to 7700 Leesburg Pike, Suite 208, Falls Church, VA 22043.
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.
