On With Life is proud to host the inaugural Optimism Walk for Parkinson’s Disease on Saturday, September 29, 2018! The walk will take place within the therapy grounds of the On With Life Ankeny Campus and is part of a nationwide movement to mobilize and inspire people to help put an end to Parkinson’s Disease.
“We are honored to have to opportunity to host this event in honor of those we serve at On With Life and across Iowa who are living with Parkinson’s Disease,” said Tammy Miller, outpatient care manager at On With Life and current American Parkinson Disease Association Iowa Chapter board member. “It is an important part of our mission within the outpatient program to create programing and advocate for those living with the disease.”
On With Life began offering a Parkinson’s Disease LSVT Big and Loud program in 2013 and has helped more than 500 individuals living with the disease to increase function, increase independence and improve their quality of life. In addition to the LSVT Big and Loud programing, On With Life offers an LSVT/Parkinson’s support group, a Parkinson’s boxing program, adapted yoga classes and individual Parkinson’s therapy programming depending on the needs of each individual.
