POP WALK 2018 Was a Huge Success!

Saturday, October 6th, 2018

We had a huge turnout on the beautiful grounds of First Baptist Church of Augusta for our 3rd Annual POP Walk, the People of Parkinson’s Walk, our 19th fundraising and awareness walk for Parkinson’s disease in the CSRA. With the help of many volunteers, participants, and businesses, we met our goal and raised over $60,000 to fight parkinson’s in the CSRA and fund research for better treatment and a cure. Stay tuned for information about our 20th Walk coming this fall!
