Welcome to our Moving Day® Team Page!
First let’s talk about why we are here; you are here because I have Parkinson’s and I’m here to help in any way I can to raise awareness and money to help other with their fight against this dreadful disease. Trust me this disease is dreadful and it’s a fight every day.
My days all start the same; I wake up from yet another night of difficulty sleeping. Most mornings my first steps feel like I’m learning to walk for the first time. Then there are the stiff muscles, slowed movement, and joint pain. After I take my first 3 of 12 pills I take every day it’s off to the shower. I have to be careful as I step over the side of the tub to take my shower which now takes me twice as long as before PD. Thankfully it’s easier to navigate the tub sides after my shower, with shaking hands most days I manage to shave myself without any loss of blood. As I get dressed then there’s the balance issue with putting on my pants or shorts and if I’m lucky on most days I have no issues with my buttons, but on some days they can be a fight, try buttoning up your shirt or tying you shoes wearing gloves.
The above paragraph is just part of my daily struggle with Parkinson’s but with my Rocksteady Boxing, Cycle riding and support from my friends I’m winning the battle so far. But there are thousands here in the Kansas City metro that are not and that’s why I’m asking for your help once again to make Stew’s Crew the top team on Moving Day. Being number one is great not for bragging rights but rather it shows that I’ve done my best. But I cannot do it without your help.
As a team we raised $14,075.00 in 2013 for this great cause, in 2014 our total was $20,450.00 and in 2015 the amount raised was $17,945.00, in 2016 we raised $20,451.00 and in 2017 it was $18,440.00 bringing our 5 year total to $91,401.00. Our team goal this year is $27,000.00
