Welcome to our Journey with Jacquie Moving Day® Team Page!
Our wife, mom, grandma, friend, and all around awesome woman, Jacquie was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2016.
Jacquie’s father Jack Beisler also had Parkinson’s, as does our cousin Kathy Maurer’s husband Kent. We found out about this event through Kathy, who does the Ohio version of the walk in honor of Kent. Jacquie also has local Chicago area friends that she met through having Parkinson’s who participate.
We are excited to do this in honor of Jacquie and Kent, in memory of Jack, and to beat Parkinson’s for all those battling it now, those who have died, and those who may be faced with it in the future.
In the United States, 50,000-60,000 new cases of Parkinson’s disease (PD) are diagnosed each year, adding to the one million people who currently have PD.
Join our team for the local National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) Moving Day® walk in Chicago on Sunday, October 15th at 9:00 a.m. in Lincoln Park.
NPF’s Moving Day walk is 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.
