It's also a fundraiser for Dystonia? What is Dystonia and what does it have to do with Juggling?
Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder characterized by involuntary muscle contractions, which force certain parts of the body into abnormal, sometimes painful, movements or postures. It is the third most common movement disorder after Parkinson's Disease and Tremor, affecting more than 300,000 people in North America. Dystonia does not discriminate - affecting all races and ethnic groups.
Whether it's juggling, unicycling, footbag or frisbee, the ability to control our muscles is something we strive for, and with that comes a greater understanding and desire to help those who have had that control taken away from them. For more about DYSTONIA http://www.dystonia-foundation.org/
