Today, more than seven million people around the world suffer from Parkinson’s disease. The disease is chronic and progressive, with symptoms ranging from tremor, stiffness,rigidity, and pain to speech and swallowing, memory loss and depression. Because of the complexity of this disease, patients and their families, as well as physicians and healthcare professionals, need access to the most effective care and treatment information available.
That is why the National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) works each day to improve the quality of Parkinson’s care through research, education and outreach. By working together, we can improve the quality of care for every person diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease today and in the future. Your donation will support the work they are doing!
Runners, including Kids, receive a Technical Race Shirt, bib, pins, and timing chip. This is a family-friendly event!
Race Day Registration starts at 6:45am at the University of the Incarnate Word. Walk-ins welcome (cash only).
RUN & FUN!
After the race, enjoy yourself at the Foodie Event. We’ll have music, tasty treats & beverages for you. A great time to relax and have fun after the run!
