Thank you for helping us reach our fundraising goal to support the vital work of the Parkinson's Foundation!!
Why Move for Moving Day?
Did you know that someone is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease every 9 minutes in the United States? No one should have to face Parkinson’s alone. That is why the Parkinson's Foundation provides a community of support to give people the resources and help they need to live well with Parkinson’s.
Support our mission to help every person diagnosed with Parkinson's live their best possible life now. Your gift will help us fund better research, better treatment and better lives.
We are doing the race in the memory of our sweet, loving, and beautiful Maria Rodriguez, who fought Parkinsons disease for over 25 years. Our goal is to make people become more aware of the struggle of what somone with Parksinsons endures, and having to watch someone you love lose their abilities due to a disease that takes so much from its' fighters and their loved ones. Hopefully, we will help find more medical breakthroughs that can make the lives of someone battling Parkinson's easier, and make our Maria proud, and mostly, let her know how proud we were of her and how she battled and fought for so long.
If you would like to participate, please feel free to contact me or just show upp to the race!!
