Welcome to My Personal Page
When I was 16 my father, Tom Pajda, the strongest and most incredible man I know, was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by constant tremors, limb rigidity, loss of movement, and many other debilitating symptoms. The pain I experience seeing him suffer isn't even comparable to the pain he goes through every single day. I have shed countless tears and sent up so many prayers begging for his relief from this disease, but unfortunately there is no cure. The cause of Parkinson's is unknown, a cure for Parkinson's is unknown, and the future of Parkinson's is still unknown. But right now, I'm working to change that!
Moving Day 2019 is a fundraising event to support Parkinson’s research and to move others to take action. It is a movement for change — towards more funding, more awareness, and more understanding of a disease that affects a person so incredibly close to my heart.
This year I have a fundraising goal of $500 for Moving Day 2019. On October 5th I will be walking in my father's honor on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at Lone Star Park to support Parkinson's research and to hopefully make a change for the future.
The event will be a fun-filled, family-friendly event for all ages and abilities. We will be able to enjoy a variety of movement activities like yoga, dance, Pilates, Tai Chi, boxing, 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.
It would mean to world to my family and I to reach our fundraising goal before October 5th!!
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart <3
