****SPREAD THE WORD!!!!****
A Healing In Motion Series-
Healing in Motion started as a series of fundraising events using dance as a means to raise funds for Nat & Marion’s House . Historically dance has been healing and spiritual. Healing In Motion is yet another way in which individuals and families affected by Alzheimer’s Disease can receive healing through dance. “Akoma” a word in the African language of Twi that means heart. Do have a heart and come support a worthy cause.
The proceeds of these events will go towards the creation of Nat & Marion’s House. This initiative is dedicated to helping persons with Alzheimer’s disease live with dignity by providing supportive services to patients and their caregivers.
