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 2nd annual Moving Day event will take place on Saturday, November 8th, 2014 at the Wilson Family Y Track on Wheeler Rd! Last year’s walk had a huge turn-out, perfect weather, and we raised a total of $34,526.70 to fight Parkinson’s disease! The website is up for registration at www.movingdayaugusta.org, and we’ve set a new goal of $35,000. It’s never too early to start fundraising, so head to the site and start your team, register as an individual today, or make a donation today!
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.
