Rasheda Ali

Rasheda Ali, author of “I’ll Hold Your Hand So You Won’t Fall: A Child’s Guide to Parkinson’s Disease” & daughter of Muhammad Ali

As part of our celebration of the Grand Opening of the new Center for Movement Disorders & Neurorestoration, Rasheda Ali (daughter of Muhammad Ali and world-renowned speaker & Parkinson’s advocate) will be joining us for this special event, “A Night of Champions”.

Rasheda was inspired to write her book, by watching the interaction between her children and her father, the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali. She travels the globe as an author and advocate for Parkinson’s care and research.

Please join us at 7PM on May 25 at the UF Hilton & Conference Center. Light hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served, Ali’s lecture begins at 8pm, and attendees will receive a signed copy of her book. Tickets are $100 per person and all proceeds from the event will benefit patient care and research in Parkinson’s disease, Dystonia, Tourette’s and other movement disorders.

Register now for this event!

    Best to contact the organizers listed on the ticket. There are rumblings about tours.

    Everyone wants to know whether there will be a chance to SEE the new MDC. Could they have a tour an hour BEFORE?
