‘Moving Day’ Twin Cities, Walk For Parkinson’s, This Saturday, May 3rd [VIDEO]
A fundraising walk to support people living with Parkinson’s will be held this Saturday morning, May 3rd, at Hilde Center and Park in Plymouth, Minnesota. Registration begins at 9 am with a 10 am start. There is no registration fee and prizes will be awarded to those individuals or teams that raise the most money by walk day. The ‘Moving Day‘ Twin Cities goal this year is $222,000, and as of this morning, they have already raised, $134,022.54 (60 %).
I lost my father-in-law, John T. Schaffner (Bumpa), to this terrible and unforgiving disease last year. The loss of John, and others who either have lost their battle with Parkinson’s or are currently in the fight, should motivate us all to do what we can to help. My wife, Tracy, has organized a team in his memory. Please donate what you can.
‘Moving Day’ is taking place all across the country. The event is part of the plan to raise awareness and money for Parkinson’s. Money raised will continue to support education, outreach, research and more through the NPF. NPF recruited Katie Couric, whose father had Parkinson’s, to help promote Moving Day nationally.
