CSRA PARKINSON SUPPORT GROUP
Based in Augusta, GA, the 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 Augusta University and the Veteran’s Administration, and through contributions to national organizations.
Saturday, October 1st
First Baptist Church Augusta
Event starts at 9 am, Walk at 10.
In honor of our 25th year, we are reinventing our annual fundraising and awareness walk. Introducing: POP Walk, or the People of Parkinson’s Walk. Parkinson’s disease affects us all, whether we are patients, families, friends, co-workers, healthcare professionals, spiritual leaders, business leaders, or students. We are the People of Parkinson’s. We will gather on October 1st, 2016 to walk, stretch, dance, build teams, share laughter and tears, learn about Parkinson’s, participate in exercise demonstrations, honor the memory of those we’ve lost, and raise funds and awareness to fight Parkinson’s disease.
