As many of you know, my father, Gerald Hughes has Parkinson's Disease. This has profoundly affected his walking, balance, speech, and worst of all, his ability to sing (he sang with the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus for over 50 years and was also music minister at our church). We are very grateful for the doctors at University Hospitals and their ongoing, wonderful care. Through research, the medication provided has helped greatly improve his quality of life.
I am participating in Moving Day® Cleveland, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation Ohio, on Saturday, June 17th, 2017.
The event, taking place at the Wade Oval at University Circle, 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, boxing, stretching and much more and celebrate the importance of movement in our lives.
Thank you for helping us reach our fundraising goal to support the vital work of the National Parkinson 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 National Parkinson 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.
