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.
Our 15th Parkinson’s Walk and 3rd annual Moving Day event took place on Saturday, November 8th, 2014! The chilly weather did little to keep people with Parkinson’s, friends, family, supporters, volunteers, and health care providers from filling the Family Y Track to show their support, advocate for the disease, get moving, and raise funds for our great cause! Donations are still coming in, but we have already beaten our goal, raising over $37K! There are so many people and businesses to thank: far too many to list here. Huge thanks to everyone involved!
We are excited to announce that applications for our new Respite Care Grant Program for people with Parkinson’s disease and their care-partners are available now! You can learn more at our chapter meetings or click here for more information.
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.
