The Movers & Shakers 2nd Annual Picnic for Parkinson’s to Benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation
Old Style Family Picnic Takes Place on October 10th, 2015 at Quiet Waters Park
The Movers & Shakers were founded by a group of friends, two living with Parkinson's ; Jim Branham, Steve Schmidt and who are the Shakers of the group and the Mover is Mike Gordon. Together, they launched the Parkinson’s PIcnic because they know personally that the Parkinson’s Disease affects the entire family. “We wanted to give families a reason to get outside and have fun, while raising money for a cause that has impacted all of us personally,”
Guests to the picnic will enjoy activities including a bounce house for kids, volleyball, lawn games, raffles, and food sponsored by Cheney Brothers International. Tickets for the picnic are $5 for adults and children are free; they are available throughhttp://picnicforparkinsons.eventbrite.com/
Additional sponsors of the event include Calvary Chapel, City Church, and Offerdahl’s Café and Grille. Additional sponsorships are currently available.

Over five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson's disease, a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder whose symptoms typically progress from mild tremors to complete physical incapacitation. In the United States, an estimated 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure for Parkinson's disease. Current treatments mask symptoms but do not alter or slow disease progression.
