CSRA PARKINSON SUPPORT GROUP

Founded in 1991, the CSRA Parkinson Support Group is an all-volunteer-run non-profit organization serving families affected by Parkinson’s disease in the Central Savannah River Area, from Aiken, South Carolina to Louisville, Georgia, centered in Augusta. Our mission: supporting people with Parkinson’s disease, their families, and their care-partners in the CSRA. We serve the Parkinson’s community through educational meetings and exhibits, fellowship opportunities, respite care grants, awareness events, specialized exercise classes designed especially for people with Parkinson’s, monthly newsletter and e-newsletter, and research grants.

First Baptist Church of Augusta
Event starts at 9 am, Walk at 10.

Parkinson’s disease affects us all, whether we are patients, families, friends, co-workers, healthcare professionals, spiritual leaders, business leaders, or students. We are the People of Parkinson’s. We will gather on October 7th, 2017 to walk, stretch, dance, build teams, share laughter and tears, learn about Parkinson’s, participate in exercise demonstrations, honor the memory of those we’ve lost, and raise funds and awareness to fight Parkinson’s disease.
