Moving Forward

The 2012 Ride/Walk for Parkinson’s started out as a chilly, overcast day; but the warmth of the participants filled everyone’s hearts! More than 350 people rode or walked to raise money for the Parkinson’s Program at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin including the three Parkinson’s specialists here in Neurology, Karen Blindauer, MD, Brad Hiner, MD and Katie Spangler, MD.

We proved that family and friends trump disease and that exercise is good for – and possible for – all of us! With over 50 volunteers the day went smoothly. We even had a Medical College anesthesiologist, Zeljko Bosnjak, doing magic tricks in the Children’s Area! The kids were spellbound! Thanks to all who sponsored, donated, volunteered, and participated.
