Our Trip to Japan

On our recent visit to Japan, we were invited by our friend John Gribble, to speak to one of his English classes about Parkinson’s disease and Team Parkinson. We met on a Friday morning in the Tokyo area with five lovely ladies who spoke English a lot better than we do, or ever will, speak Japanese! The women were very interested in what we had to say, asked some well thought-out questions and were very honored to have us there as their guests. We’d have to say that the honor was ours. They were very impressed with John’s running accomplishments and with Team Parkinson’s fundraising success and found much motivation in what we do. We were pleased to present them with Team Parkinson t-shirts and further honored by the groups’ generous gift to us, which we decided to donate to Team Parkinson in their names.
