with having raised the funds needed to continue and expand local programs and
national research, made it a day to remember.

Everyone got moving with Tai Chi in the Movement Pavilion
and continued with a relaxing walk along the lake. It didn’t stop there as
people continued “moving” throughout the morning with Zumba, Boxing, Ageless
Grace and Voice Therapy.
This great day would not have been possible without the work
of a dedicated committee, teams, volunteers, instructors and our local
partners: Nova Southeastern University, St. Jude Medical, Impax Laboratories,
Sunovion Pharmaceuticals, NeuroDerm, Lundbeck, Right at Home, UCB AbbVie,
Panera Bread, South Florida Cloggers and our committee meeting host site David
Posnack JCC. Thank you all so much for your continued support and for your help
in making our event a success!
