The tulip, one of the first spring flowers, is the symbol for Parkinson’s disease. A colorful reminder about the National Paarkinson Foundations’ Moving Day this Saturday. Moving Day Walk is a fun, inspiring fundraising event that unites families, friends and communities in the fight against Parkinson’s disease.
Moving Day is more than just a walk. It highlights “movement” and exercise as a symbol of hope and progress because of its essential role in treating Parkinson’s disease. Movement and exercise are more than just healthy.
Movement is vital to maintaining the strength, balance, mobility necessary for independence in every day living. Did you know that exercise can actually help slow the progression of Parkinson’s?
I have been walking with Parkinson’s groups since Liz Ogren, creator and energy of Pedal and Roll for Parkinson’s, invited me three years ago. Join me on Saturday morning for another dose of inspiration. You’ll have the chance to move with thousands (there were 3000 participants last year) who share a common goal- to help beat Parkinson’s.
Moving is Medicine!
