STAYING IN FOCUS: MOVING DAY/TRIANGLE: A WALK FOR PARKINSON’S DISEASE

PAT’S PATROL

We had our Moving Day event for Parkinson’s disease. It had been warm and sunny prior to the event , but November 1st dawned cold, windy and rainy. It didn’t dim  our spirits, though, and we all had  a great time. My team, Pat’s Patrol raised $900.00 and overall the event raised $177,000.  I was amazed at how many people were willing to walk in the cold, drizzly morning to show their support for us, and how many people with PD  were out there, too, choosing to be a part of the process, helping themselves and others as well. As they said in the opening ceremony, PD is not  a disease, it’s, a challenge, and there were plenty of us  at that event, rising to meet the challenge. My thanks to my valiant team and generous supporters.  Working together we will keep moving toward a cure. There are several possibilities on the horizon to at least slow the progression of the disease (a vaccine) or a better delivery system for levodopa which may prevent the development of dyskinesia. So we cling to hope, and keep moving!

Here are some pictures of the event:
