Getting Our Groove On! – Community Support is a Very Special Part of Our Daily Business

It can be easy to take our ability to move for granted. If your body does what you want it to do when you want it to without pain, you likely barely think about how you’re moving most of the time. Sadly, not everyone is so lucky. Conditions like cerebral palsy, MS, and Parkinson’s disease make it difficult or impossible for many people to move well on a daily basis.

The Movement Centre of Manitoba helps these people and others with movement disabilities regain some or all of their skills and independence. The support that the center provides can be invaluable to individuals who may have thought they would never regain their movement skills.

The Move ‘N Groove-a-Thon is a fundraiser for the Movement Centre. Teams gather pledges that sponsor them to dance for six hours. Every type of dancing will be encouraged, from those with formal experience to those with no experience at all to those in wheel chairs or using other mobility aids. This means that everyone can participate! The event will take place on May 3, 2014, and you can register to participate – or make your donation – here.

The Derksen Group is extremely proud to be the title sponsor for the 2014 Move ‘N Groove-a-Thon. We believe in supporting everyone in our community, and the Movement Centre is an important part of life for some of the people who need our support the most.

We encourage our clients and readers to consider how essential movement is to their lifestyle, and how important it is that we provide options for those who have had their movement limited. Please participate in the Move ‘N Groove-a-Thon if you are able, and consider giving a direct donation if you cannot participate.
