One of my dad’s favorite stories to tell is the one where he came home from school after having been in a fight with a classmate. When his dad asked him who won, my dad replied that he’d left the fight. There was no winner. So, naturally, his dad told him to go back and finish it. I don’t remember exactly how it ends, but I’m pretty sure he got his ass kicked. I guess the lesson stuck, though — in my life I’ve never seen him back down from a fight. 

He didn’t back down during 20 years in the navy. He didn’t back down when he faced cancer. He wouldn’t even back down when I’d ask to borrow the car keys. And he sure as hell isn’t backing down against Parkinson’s. 

In the nearly 10 years since his diagnosis, my dad has met this disease hit-for-hit. It’s his fight, but I want to show him that we’re in his corner now. The same way he’s always been in ours. 

So I’m participating in Moving Day® Winston-Salem, benefiting the Parkinson’s Foundation, on Saturday, April 28, 2018, at Bailey Park.

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? 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.
