Our World Parkinson’s Day Event

As I mentioned in my last post, yesterday we moved our spin bikes out of the classroom and into the lobby of the YMCA and held our Pedaling for Parkinson’s class in the lobby . We had a good turnout of cyclists and attracted a lot of attention from Y members and visitors who stopped to watch us as class progressed. A member of the Neuro Challenge Foundation staff was there to answer questions and provide literature about PD and the foundation. And a reporter from the local news station, Suncoast News Network, was there and filmed us for a news report that was broadcast that evening. A video of the broadcast is below. A big thank you goes out to the YMCA staff for allowing us to hold our class in the lobby and to our instructors Kathy and Kelly for always challenging us to keep on pedaling. And kudos to all of the riders who participated in the event to bring awareness to PD.

Oh, you may have noticed a familiar face being interviewed towards the end of the video, yep that’s me making my TV debut. I’m pretty sure the offers for a starring role will be rolling in any day now πŸ™‚
