Lions, Tigers & Bears: Year 4

Heralding the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation’s 4th Annual Bronx Zoo Walk, I couldn’t be more hopeful of all the future holds for our community of Dystonia patients, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and friends…sharing challenges, life struggles and hard-fought victories.

With Dystonia Zoo Walks burgeoning across the country – 13 in 2018 – awareness is on the rise as we celebrate the promise of tomorrow. Fundraising is how we push that promise to fulfillment. Each of us bears the potential to activate our friends, families and colleagues to cure Dystonia. Start with determination, add in a good measure of persistence, and a dash of keeping expectations at bay. Strength in numbers means we’re not asking for the moon. Remember, our fundraising efforts sow the seeds of hope.

Gather at the Bronx Zoo on Sunday, September 16 for a memorable day of Dystonia awareness, fun and FUNdraising. Enjoy refreshments and festivities and then roam the zoo at your leisure. Proceeds benefit the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation. With collective activism, we can cure dystonia.

Lions, Tigers & Bears…Year 3!

As Dystonia Awareness Month approaches, I’m thrilled to fill in first place on my Dystonia Awareness Dance Card with the 3rd Annual Bronx Zoo Walk on September 10. This FUNdraising event has become my pride and joy, a day to celebrate awareness and make our way one step closer to realizing our dream of curing dystonia. We should all remember:

When a star is born, They possess a gift or two
One of them is this, They have the power to make a wish come true

When you wish upon a star, Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you

If your heart is in your dream, No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star, As dreamers do

The Bronx Zoo Walk is a day for Dystonia dreamers to come together at the spectacular Bronx Zoo to gaze upon the amazing wildlife roaming the lush greenery and dream about days to come when we are free as an uncaged beast from Dystonia.
