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.
