Welcome to Team Eklund's Moving Day Page
Kent will celebrate his 75th birthday in April, which is also Parkinson's Awareness Month. We want to observe both by setting a Moving Day Goal of $7,500. Nine years ago, we would never have believed that our lives would be this normal, this active, this joy-filled, with Parkinson's. But Kent is thriving because of PD medications, research, exercise, and positive attitude. That explains his college nickname, Smiley!
Read more about Moving Day and how you can help celebrate Kent and so many others.
The event will be a fun-filled, family-friendly event for all ages and abilities. We will be able to enjoy a variety of movement activities like yoga, dance, Pilates, Tai Chi, boxing, stretching and much more and celebrate the importance of movement in our lives.
Please consider being a part of my team or sponsoring me, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved.
Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the Parkinson's Foundation.
Why Move for Moving Day?
Did you know that someone is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease every 9 minutes in the United States? No one should have to face Parkinson’s alone. That is why the Parkinson's Foundation provides a community of support to give people the resources and help they need to live well with Parkinson’s.
Support our mission to help every person diagnosed with Parkinson's live their best possible life now. Your gift will help us fund better research, better treatment and better lives.
