I am participating in Moving Day® NC Triangle, benefiting the Parkinson’s Foundation, on Sunday, October 1, 2017, at Koka Booth Amphitheatre.
Please consider: sponsoring me, or, joining a team, or, participating individually.
I was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease in 2009; fortunately the disease has progressed slowly. Last fall I joined the local Rock Steady Boxing group which is dedicated to fighting back against the disease via a rigorous exercise regimen (including punching the heavy bag)l But it is more than an exercise group. It is a support group, it is a social network, it is a family of folks with similar issues and concerns. Last year this event raised over $217 thousand, and we want to blow past that amount this year.
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? There is no known cure at this point. So, while research efforts continue to pursue a cure, The Parkinson’s Foundation provides a community of support to provide 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.
