I am participating in Moving Day Boca Raton, benefiting the Parkinson’s Foundation South Palm Beach County Chapter, on Sunday, November 4, 2018 at Florida Atlantic University Stadium.
As a patient living with Parkinson’s Disease, I am grateful that I have access to the finest team of physicians, specialists and therapy available.
Part of my therapy for PD includes daily vigorous exercise. I know the importance of exercise. According to the Parkinson’s Foundation, exercise is vital to living well with Parkinson’s and can help with balance, flexibility and mobility issues. Parkinson’s experts suggest that certain kinds of exercise may be neuro-protective, i.e., actually slowing the disease progression.
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 involved.
Thank you for helping me reach my 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? The Parkinson’s Foundation estimates there are more than 1 million people in the United States diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, and more than 60,000 people are diagnosed each year. 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.
