Thank you to the many sponsors that maintained their support and partnership with us again in 2018, and welcome to the 47 new sponsors who joined the InMotion team in helping people with Parkinson’s disease feel better every day.

Thank you to our generous sponsors! Please click here for a full listing and to learn more about them.

Of course, this day would not have been possible without the 135 volunteers that helped make the day run so smoothly – from registration to food to t-shirts to water – we wouldn’t be able to do what we do without you! And thank you to everyone who came out to support “Pals In Motion” and helped pull this all together – our staff, coaches, clients, carepartners, the Orange Schools and Hermes Cleveland\Fleet Feet!  Everyone helped to make this event memorable and one of the best family events of the year.

Special thanks to InMotion Board President, Beth Curtiss, and our InMotion Board of Directors for their energy, enthusiasm, and leadership. A very special thank you to Jimmy Choi for being our very own “American Ninja Warrior” again for 2018.

Jimmy’s story resonates with many of InMotion’s clients and carepartners, and we thank him for sharing his journey and his message that “life can be ok with Parkinson’s disease – you just have to work at it and be surrounded by a great community.” Thank you, Jimmy!

Special recognition goes to Sherri and Marc Blaushild and their “Famous” Team for their time, expertise, financial resources, and support – especially to Vicki Feola and Julie Wright — we could not have done it without you! Thank you!
