We are walking to support my mother, Shirley (aka Bluebird), who was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease about four years ago. She is an active member of the local Parkinson's community and participates in many of the beneficial activities they provide (including support groups). Her favorite activity is boxing. She attends a boxing class specifically designed for people with Parkinson's three times a week. Her boxing nickname is Bluebird. Boxing helps with her coordination, movement, and also allows her to feel supported by her peers.
