WALK FOR PARKINSON 2017
On Saturday, April 1, 2017 the Parkinson Association of Central Florida held its annual WALK FOR PARKINSON at Cranes Roost Park in Altamonte Springs. Over 600 people joined to celebrate movement as a symbol of hope and progress in finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
Pat Clarke, Sports Anchor from WESH TV NEWS was our exciting Master of Ceremonies for the event. Pat opened the program with speakers from Florida Hospital, Compass Research and our esteemed PACF board members, Dr. Rita Bornstein, former President of Rollins College and John Gabriel former Orlando Magic General Manager.
With our dedicated community motivated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s, the WALK exceeded it’s goal to bring in over $106,000. The previous year the Walk raised $73,000. A portion of these donations will be attributed to community initiatives and research to find a cure.
The Parkinson Association of Central Florida is already planning the next walk to be held in April 14, 2018. If anyone is interested in donating money or sponsoring the April 2018 walk please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
