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 will take place on Saturday, October 19th, 2013 at the Wilson Family Y Track. It will be a gathering of people with Parkinson’s, families, friends, co-workers, healthcare professionals, corporate leaders, and teams to raise awareness and funds to fight Parkinson’s disease. The event will include the walk, exhibits, music, food, family fun, and the “Movement Pavilion” encouraging a variety of physical activities. Sign up for Moving Day today and show your support!
