On April 16, 2016 the Parkinson Association of Central Florida held it's annual Walk for Parkinson at Blue Jacket Park in Baldwin Park, Florida. With over 500 people attended the walk well surpassed all expectations.
The goal was to raise $50,000 to be attributed to community support programs, and donations to research institutions. However, the walk exceeded past those goals and raised a total of $73,393. Over 800 people donate to the walk’s fundraiser helping to achieve these goals. Thank you to all of those who helped raise money and awareness for Parkinson’s disease.
The success of the walk is just the start for the Parkinson Association. They have many future projects planned with community partners. To help implement these projects the Parkinson Association hired, walk committee member, Emily Rinehart as the Development Coordinator. “I am thrilled to be helping alongside such a great cause. This organization truly has remarkable volunteers helping to grow this organization,” said Emily.
The Parkinson Association of Central Florida is already planning the next walk to be held in April 2017. If anyone is interested in sponsoring the April 2017 walk please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
