COVID-19 Event Guidelines:
We cannot wait to see our registered participants in-person but first we have a few guidelines in place to keep everyone safe. Our Run/Walk might look different this year but our passion and commitment to Parkinson's research and our community is unchanged. The health and safety of all our guests and participants is our number one goal. 
  • If you are feeling sick or have been recently exposed to someone who recently tested positive for COVID-19, you should stay home
  • People who have underlying health conditions or are taking medications that weaken the immune system should talk to their healthcare provider before attending larger gatherings

We appreciate your understanding and if you are unable to attend, we hope you will continue to support our mission by donating.
