Hi Everyone!

I am participating in Moving Day® Rochester, NY, benefiting the Parkinson’s Foundation Greater Rochester Chapter, on Sunday, September 30, 2018 at Monroe Coumunity College.

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 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.

I was diagnosed with Early Onset Parkinson’s Disease in 2015 when a trembling in my hand became more noticeable.  Luckily, for now, it is only affecting my left side.  My doctor advised me to find ways to exercise (I’ve never been a fan of exercise).  I always believed that I exercised enough in my daily life with my job, kids, etc., but I was told that is not enough.  Walking is a great form of exercise!  My doctor also told me that I need to find something relaxing to do – mind and body wellness, it is believed, can both slow the Parkinson’s progression.   My relaxation comes from painting, a hobby I started a couple of years ago.  Hopefully, creating outlets for mind/body wellness will slow the progression!

Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the Parkinson’s Foundation.
