Welcome to My Personal Page
I am participating in Moving Day Baltimore - Virtual Walk, benefiting the Parkinson's Foundation. Our team's name is "Bobby Lew's Bowlers" in memory of my Dad, Robert Lewis, Sr. He was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. He was an avid bowler, so we thought it appropriate to include "bowler" in our team's name.
The title Moving Day fits right in with my father's lifestyle in that he felt exercise was the way to go and one should keep moving at any age. He continued bowling pretty much until the end of his life. A particularly poignant story comes to mind. The disease had progressed to the point where he was not to drive. But, in his stubbornness, he did anyway. He ended up driving to a bowling alley, although he was confused as to how he got there.
One of my favorite pictures is of my Dad, my brother Robby and me in Atlantic City in the 1950s.
This event will truly 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.
