The goal of the Walk is to raise awareness of Parkinson’s and funds for a cure. This year’s Walk included 80 family, friends, village neighbors, a yoga class, and Fearrington Dutch folk who all joined members of the Parkinson’s Support Group. Donations of $1,500 were accepted for the Parkinson’s Foundation but were not required. To also donate, go to the National Parkinson’s Foundation, use this link.
The group is now raising funds to participate in the Parkinson’s Moving Day NC Triangle Walk on November 03, 2018. For more details, to join their team (Beltie MOOvers), go to movingdaywalk.org/MOOvers, or email Doug Zabor at the address below.
