In 2015 PJ Parkinson's Group was created and has hosted an annual walk-a-thon ever since. The mission behind our 5K run/ 1K walk is to help people better understand this progressive nervous system disorder and offer patients a caring environment full of support.
Thank you to all of our sponsors, vendors, volunteers, and current participants who contributed to our event last year and helped make it a huge success! For 2020, we will hold it as COVID virtual event with small in person teams at a number of locations and the possibility to dial in from home as well. We will broadcast live from our production studio. Our emcee will connect with you live during this event.
Get your family and friends together and join from anywhere - your home, neighborhood, park around the corner... in the U.S. or all around the world. Enjoy nature and culture as people walk in Iceland, Germany, Italy, Africa, and much more countries. Every group will receive a link and access code to allow us all to connect while out and about or at home. You can also record your group in advance and send us the video. We will integrate your recording in our live broadcast.
This race is to benefit and support all free classes, respite care, mental health hotline, support group meetings, and all other services offered by PJ Parkinson's Support. We need your help to make a difference.
This will be a BIG DAY you don't want to miss. Build a team in honor or memory of a loved one. You can also make it FUN by registering a COMPANY TEAM or NEIGHBORHOOD RUNNING GROUP!
Thanks to our main event sponsor Senior Helpers and event supporters Avenir Memory Care, Morning Pointe Assisted Living, Amneal Therapeutics, Acorda Pharmaceuticals, and Blalock & Sons
