GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — The National Parkinson Foundation of Minnesota is challenging greater Minnesota to help break the record for most people dancing for Parkinson’s on Saturday, September 20 at the Ridgedale YMCA in Minnetonka.
The second-annual “Dance to Break the Record” helps to raise awareness about Parkinson’s Disease and how staying active can help those affected. Last year, 79 people took part in the dance, and NPFM is hoping to shatter that number in 2014 while challenging other NPF chapters from across the country to top NPFM’s number while helping create awareness.
Kicking off at 3:30, the day will be highlighted by dancing demonstrations, a medical update and learning a choreographed dance which will be performed as part of the record-breaking process. The dance is open to Parkinson’s patients, their families and the greater Minnesota community as a whole. Refreshments will be served.
No dance experience is necessary! The choreographed number can be performed seated or standing.
Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door and can be purchased here.
