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 14th Parkinson’s Walk and 2nd annual Moving Day event took place on Saturday, October 19th, 2013. The weather was perfect, we had a great turnout, lots of folks got moving in the Movement Pavilion, AND we raised a total of $34,526.70! After expenses, approximately $9,000 will go to the great work of the National Parkinson Foundation, and approximately $20,000 will be used to help people with Parkinson’s and fund research right here in the CSRA!
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.
