behalf of the Moving Day® Committee, Thank you all for your support in creating
a truly special Moving Day Columbus on September 28th. As we
were planning this event at the beginning of the year, we knew Ohioans would
come together to help raise money and awareness for Parkinson’s disease.
In 2013, you helped us reach $90,000, exceeding our goal of $75,000. This
year, we set a goal of $115,000 confident that we would achieve that
number. Because of all of your support reaching out to friends and
family, you helped us exceed our second stretch goal of $140,000! We are now close to raising $165,000! Not only did we exceed the financial goal, we exceeded our
attendance goal, with over 900 people joining us to show “People Who Move
Change The World®”***

we had a truly special day raising awareness and financial support for the
programs and services offered by the NPF and the Central & Southeast Ohio
