Welcome to our Moving Day® "Movers & Shakers" Team Page!
In the United States, 50,000-60,00 new cases of Parkinson's disease (PD) are diagnosed each year, adding to the one million people who currently have PD. The cause of Parkinson's disease is unknown and presently there is no cure; and only a handful of treatments. People with Parkinson's display their symptoms differently. Some people go for years with relatively minor impairment while in others tremors, muscle rigidity, the loss of certain motor movements, balance, posture and speech can manifest quite quickly and can be quite pronounced. These losses can be very difficult to deal with and people with PD often struggle to cope.
Two years ago my husband, Rob, was diagnosed with Parkinson's. I am walking to raise money for Parkinson's research and to support local Parkinson's programs.
Join our team for the local National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) Moving Day® walk, the first nationwide grassroots campaign that spotlights the disease on a national level and gives the chance to raise awareness and funds in our own community. Your support will help NPF continue improving the quality of care for those living with Parkinson's disease.
