Cincinnati ShakeUp for Parkinson’s a Hit!

People pose for photo

Celebrities in attendance at the Cincinnati ShakeUp for Parkinson’s event, presented by Cintas and benefitting the Gardner Center and the  Brian Grant Foundation, helped make the evening a magical and memorable one.

Above, former Cincinnati Bengal Dhani Jones with TV personality and  co-host Nick Lachey, both wearing the Parkinson’s tie designed  especially for the event and produced by Dhani’s Bowtie for a Cause. The  pattern on the tie is the chemical formula for dopamine, a chemical  responsible for transmitting signals within the brain that coordinate  movement. When dopamine-producing cells die, neurons in the brain fire  erratically, leaving patients  less able to direct or control their  movements.
