Rise to the Challenge: Beat Parkinson’s Through Supporting Events

Are you interested in supporting the Parkinson’s disease community?  If so, you are in luck.  There are many events across the nation that allow you to become involved These events all help not only raise money for Parkinson’s disease, but also help raise awareness.

Examples of events that cater to active people include races/walks, ironman races and classes such as boxing. You might want to participate in a relaxed event so you can partake in  bingo, pancake sittings, Foxtoberfest, and music concerts

Supporting Parkinson’s events helps bring awareness and understanding of the disease and helps us to create a united front to combat against Parkinson’s. We encourage you to take a look at these different Parkinson’s events and take action. Start small and look at events close to home and maybe venture out a little more as you get more involved.
