Please Help Me Walk Off Parkinson's
I am emptying my contact list for this. Please excuse me if you have not heard from me in a while. If you are so inclined, just delete it. This is a cause close to me.
As you may know, about three years ago I was diagnosed with Parkinson's. I stopped working this year and fill my day with medical appointments, physical therapy, speech therapy, and Parkinson's exercise classes. I have entered a state of use or lose. I am using as much as I can. I am participating in Walk Off Parkinson’s on September 24, 2017 at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. -- home of the Washington Nationals -- to benefit the Parkinson’s Foundation of the National Capital Area (PFNCA).
That day, I will gather with thousands of others impacted by Parkinson’s to show that those facing this disease that they do not do so alone. We will walk the field at Nationals Park and raise funds to support those impacted by Parkinson’s including people diagnosed with the disease, care partners and their family members. I am aaasking for your help supporting an organization that supports me.

Take pride in knowing that PFNCA has been honored as one of the best small nonprofits in the Greater Washington Region by the Catalogue for Philanthropy.

Together, we will Walk Off Parkinson’s.
PFNCA is not affilaited with any of the many national organizations that focus on Parkinson's. Your support provides for a powerful and vibrant community helping those with Parkinson's live well.
