Parkinson’s Disease, what is it to you? To me it is my watching my daddy in the fight for his life. That day in January 2015 that forever changed our lives. He has good days and bad days. We cherish the good days and I never let him get too down on the bad days. It’s tough to watch like any disease without a cure. But he continues to preach. He continues to live a daily life. And my parents travel while they can now. You can’t give up and we won’t let him. And that is why the Parkinson’s Foundation means so much. It represents hope. Hope for a new treatment and hope for a cure.
I am participating in Moving Day® Milwaukee, benefiting the Parkinson’s Foundation, on Saturday, June 8, 2019 at Hart Park.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 like 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.Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the Parkinson’s Foundation.Why Move for Moving Day?Did you know that someone is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease every 9 minutes in the United States?
