Come out and support The Seventh Annual “Stomp Out Parkinson’s Disease” Awareness Walk on Saturday October 20, 2012. It’s held at The Communities of Solarbron campus in Evansville, IN with registration beginning at 8:30 A.M. The fun-filled event includes a two-mile walk and activities for all ages. This Evansville parkinson's walk allows us to increase awareness and raise much-needed funds for research.
Over one million Americans suffer from Parkinson’s disease, with a new case being diagnosed every nine minutes. Currently there is no cure for Parkinson’s Disease, but with your help we can move closer to one. The funds raised by the Parkinson's Unity Walk are distributed among the major U.S. Parkinson's disease foundations for Parkinson's disease research. The foundations include: (1) the American Parkinson Disease Association; (2) the National Parkinson Foundation; (3) the Parkinson's Action Network; (4) the Parkinson's Disease Foundation; (5) The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research; (6) The Parkinson Alliance; and (7) The Parkinson's Institute and Clinical Center. We can proudly say that 100% of the funds we raise go directly to the Parkinson's Unity Walk.
This event includes Parkinson’s support groups and organizations in Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois. It is the continued support of our sponsors and volunteers that have allowed this event to grow in the Tri-State. Evansville’s "Stomp Out Parkinson's Disease" walk has been ranked in the top 50 in the Nation each and every year!
Supporting "Stomp Out Parkinson’s Disease" with your donations will make it a resounding success. Thank you in advance for your support of this important event.
Together we can make a difference!
