On Sunday, November 13, 2016 at Museum Park in Downtown Miami, The National Parkinson Foundation had its 5th annual walk/run event. The fundraising event brought friends, families and communities together in the fight against Parkinson's Disease. U.S. Senator Corey Booker of recent Jersey served since the Grand Marshall with the event. In memory of his father, who endured the disease, Senator Booker is devoted to raising knowing of Parkinson's. Over $290,000 grew up through the fund raising evening to make life better for anyone with Parkinson's through research and expert care. The walk/run was a festive, informative, well put together event with 100 teams participating. The celebration began at 8 a.m. and lasted until 12 noon. The big event featured a Movement Pavilion with yoga, Tai-chi, dance, Pilates, etc., all of which are proven beneficial in managing the signs of Parkinson's Disease. The Miami Fire Department, Station 1 seemed to be accessible to offer eager children the opportunity to try their hand at building fire hose.
When i was there, I met an incredibly interesting organization called Neuroscience Centers of Florida Foundation, Inc. who're a NPO that helps patients, families and caregivers cope with the end results of chronic, degenerative neurological diseases and their non-medical accompanying issues. The great people at NCFF were extremely caring and were very welcoming. Like a clinician, I often understand the stress that loved ones and caregivers experience while caring for a medically needy relative. It was nice to determine a business that recognized that around patients need treatment; caregivers needed support at the same time. This organization minimises the physical, emotional and emotional stress linked to being clinically determined to have a neurological disease.
