The Moving Forward: Ride/Walk for Parkinson’s was a huge success! The weather was gorgeous — 70s and sunny with peak fall colors. The turnout was great — almost 200 riders and over 200 walkers. The opportunity to exercise and socialize was abundant. The band was terrific, and the children’s activities area and raffle were both big hits.
The Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders Program took in almost $60,000 to be used toward patient education and support, community exercise and dance classes for people with Parkinson’s, specialized training of our Parkinson’s team and various translational research projects in the lab run by Chris Butson, PhD, here in the Neurosciences Department
Volunteer John Chaplock took lots of pictures at the event and has posted them on Picasa
