We had a super time at our Moving Day Event this year. The weather was beautiful – a warm, sunny day, but with a nice breeze.
First, we were thrilled that our team picture was chosen to for a billboard advertising our event. Our two weeks of fame.
Second, our team raised $1,035 for the National Parkinson Foundation, an all-time high! Total for the event: $187,133!
The day dawned warm and sunny. We began with breakfast at my house, then drove over to the Koka Booth Amphitheater where my granddaughter, my friend Diane and I made it through the haunted house, the kids painted pumpkins and demonstrated their skills with cartwheels and hula hoops. We learned some Salsa moves to limber up for our walk, which was pleasant meander through the woods filled with giant spiders, spooky characters, witches and ghosts, across the parking lot, along the road and past a lake quite scenic on a warm fall afternoon.
I am always amazed and extremely thankful for the number of people willing to get up early on a Saturday morning to come out and support us. A great big THANK YOU goes out to all of you!
