Living with chronic illness, we must strive to celebrate the moments where we find ourselves and seek out occasions to celebrate. Zoo Walks are cross-crossing the country and I’m thrilled to welcome the inaugural Bronx Zoo Walk to the Big Apple on Sun., Oct. 4, 2015.
This event is so much more than a FUNdraiser – it’s a wellspring for our hope and fuels our unity of purpose. Conditions like Dystonia disempower us from exercising full bodily autonomy as we transact the business of our everyday lives. The Zoo Walks present an opportunity to transform ourselves into empowers working to secure a better tomorrow. We’re looking to take one ferocious bite out of Dystonia and cage that wild beast!
I invite everyone to join the tri-state Dystonia community for a day of awareness and hope at the Bronx Zoo on Oct. 4. Proceeds benefit the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF). You can register using the following link: Bronx Zoo Walk Registration
Enjoy the zoo as part of Team Dystonia Muse by inputting “Dystonia Muse” as your team when registering. Note there’s no racing involved, just a leisurely day at the Bronx Zoo. If you’re unable to attend, you can join us in spirit by making a donation to Team Dystonia Muse here: Donate To Team Dystonia Muse
