Photos & Video From Moving Day Parkinson’s Walk

Sunday , 15, March 2015 3 Comments

A couple of weeks ago I posted about the Moving Day National Parkinson’s Foundation Walking Benefit. That walk took place yesterday at Crane’s Roost Park in Altamonte Springs and my mother-in-law, Kay Perkins, who has Parkinson’s (as did her late father, Charles William Kinney in whose honor we walked) was well represented by her family, the Perkins’ Pack.

Below are photos and a video of the morning’s event.

No, they’re not being rude. They just want to show off their official “Perkins’ Pack” logo T-shirts.

Below is a short video of the walk. It was great for all of us to get together for this worthy cause in support of our much-loved matriarch and in honor of her late father.
