I am participating in Moving Day® Columbus , benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation, on Sunday, September9, 2018 at the Columbus Crew MAPFRE Stadium


I will be walking in Memory of my Mother Josephine { Josie } Tackett,  who battled Parkinson’s for many years. Her courage was great and she made everyone around her smile. I will be walking in memory of my friend Bill Burgett as well. He was an amazing friend that did so much to help us with Parkinson’s and his money raising skills will do so much to help prevent it for others. We were in an exercise group called Delay the Disease that works on all muscle groups including facial expressions and the vocal cords. Parkinson’s affects all of the body but sometimes pinpoints certain joints, limbs,muscles and the brain.

Having Parkinson’s, makes me thankful for all that is being done on our behalf and I know research will find a cure with your help. If you know someone with Parkinson’s, get on the move and make life easier for them. New names are added to the list of Parkinson diagnosis every day and that makes me want to do more to help.

The event will take place at Columbus Crew Stadium and 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, stretching and much more and celebrate the importance of movement in our lives.

Please consider being a part of our team or sponsoring me, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved.


Thank you for helping me reach my 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 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.
