Based in Augusta, GA, the National Parkinson Foundation Central Savannah River Area Chapter (CSRA Parkinson Support Group) has been dedicated to supporting individuals and families affected by Parkinson’s disease (PD) in counties in Georgia and South Carolina for over 20 years. We reach out locally through our monthly meetings, lunch get-togethers, monthly newsletter, health fairs and wellness programs. We support PD research through the locally based Georgia Health Sciences University and through contributions to the National Parkinson Foundation.
Moving Day Augusta was absolutely the best Walk for Parkinson’s we’ve had in 13 years! Income is $35,000 and still growing! Huge thanks to our major local partners: Kroger, Alleluia Community, Pollock Company, the Family Y, and WRDW Channel 12. Thanks to the Richmond Reelers Square Dancers, Kathleen Nohe (Tai Chi), and exercise instructor Debbie Tudor for showing us different ways to move! And of course we couldn’t have done it without our hard-working volunteers, all the participants, teams, and team captains, and all the folks who contributed toward the Parkinson’s fight. We are accepting donations until November 15th, with more prizes to win. You can still support your team and donate online: Click here!
Join us at the CSRA Parkinson Support Group’s monthly meetings for a potluck meal, a speaker or special program, sharing, and fellowship. Printed materials and exhibits are available to help our members better understand the disease and to find resources for managing the challenges of living with Parkinson’s. There are no membership fees.
