Hi Family and Friends!
Join us on Saturday June 9th from 9am to noon for the 2018 MovingDayLouisville Walk to beat Parkinson’s! This year we’ll be at Seneca Park by the tennis courts and playground with lots of things to do for children and adults! Come hear some great bluegrass music provided by our friends from Homeplace and some fine fiddling from our friends at the Louisville Folk School. Learn about Parkinson’s Disease and participate in some of the exercise activities that keep us moving..like Rock Steady Boxing, Tai Chi, Yoga, Dance and more. We’ll take a walk around the 1.2 mile paved loop (or a shorter 1/4 mile version is available) around 10:30 am. As you all know, Sonny has had Parkinson’s for over 20 years now and he is still moving and grooving! We would love for you to come hang out with us and have some fun while we raise money for the Parkinson’s Foundation.
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 Sonny’s Stars for the 2018 Parkinson’s Foundation Moving Day® walk, 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 us continue improving the quality of care for those living with Parkinson’s disease.

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.
