On Sunday, November 13, 2016 at Museum Park in Downtown Miami, The National Parkinson Foundation had its 5th annual walk/run event. The fundrasing event brought friends, families and communities together in the fight against Parkinson's Disease. U.S. Senator Corey Booker of the latest Jersey served since the Grand Marshall in the event. In memory of his father, who experienced the sickness, Senator Booker is committed to raising knowing of Parkinson's. Over $290,000 spent my childhood years through the fundrasing event to create life better for those with Parkinson's through good research and expert care. The walk/run was a festive, informative, great event with over 100 teams participating. The celebration began at 8 a.m. and lasted until 12 noon. The event featured a Movement Pavilion with yoga, Tai-chi, dance, Pilates, etc., all of which are reliable in handling the signs of Parkinson's Disease. The Miami Fire Department, Station 1 was also accessible to give eager children the ability to try their hand at your fire hose.
Because i was there, I met a very interesting organization called Neuroscience Centers of Florida Foundation, Inc. who are a NPO that can help patients, families and caregivers cope with the effects of chronic, degenerative neurological diseases in addition to their non-medical accompanying issues. The wonderful people at NCFF were extremely caring and were very welcoming. As being a clinician, I often begin to see the stress that family and caregivers undergo while caring for a medically needy family member. It had been nice to view a corporation that recognized that around patients need treatment; caregivers needed support also. This organization minimises the physical, emotional and financial pressure linked to being identified as having a neurological disease.
