I am participating in Moving Day® Chicago, benefiting the Parkinson’s Foundation, on Sunday, October 15, 2017, at Lincoln Park, South Fields. I will be walking in this event in honor of my grandpa, James Boddy, and my friends dad, Roy Hanson. Both of these men hold a special place in my heart and have been diagnosed within the last year. My grandpa grew up working on his family farm, is a veteran of the Vietnam War with a Purple Heart, and worked hard into his 60’s as a concrete worker. My friend’s dad is full of energy, always dancing, doing outdoor activities with his family and friends, boating, skiing, the list could go on! I am walking for these men and all those affected by this illness, raising money to find a cure so no one has to live with Parkinson’s disease.
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 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.
I will gladly accept cash, check, or credit/debit card donations. If you choose to donate through check, checks can be made out to National Parkinson Foundation. In the memo line you can write ‘Shakin’ Not Stirred’ or Krysten Jones.
Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the Parkinson’s Foundation.
