Donate To This Event



This year the Central Oregon Sole Support walk returns in-person at beautiful Drake Park! We are excited to welcome you and your supporters as we gather to celebrate and support each other, raise awareness for Parkinson's disease, and fundraise for local programs and services. Our gathering point is near the stage in Drake Park in Bend. The walk route will have both a short and longer version for your comfort and ability. Both routes are wheelchair and walker friendly. 

Take the first step, register online or call PRO at 800.426.6806 and we'll get you registered.
If this is your first walk or your 17th, we thank you for joining us as we fundraise and raise awareness for the important local programs and services provided by Parkinson's Resources of Oregon.  On walk day you are welcome to bring your own lunch/snacks.  We have invited several food cart vendors, and we will update here once confirmed. There will be tables and chairs available for your picnic plans as well. Remember, we are RAIN OR SHINE, so please dress for the weather.
Upon arrival your first stop will be to check in with the registration volunteers to drop off additional donations, receive earned incentives, and if necessary, register any remaining participants. 
Then, we encourage you to spend your time socializing, visit our sponsors and exhibitors, paint a pet rock, sign the HOPE banner, gather for a team photo, play a game of Soley Toss, and enjoy the day.
At 1:30 we will line up walkers for the ~1K and ~5K walks.  (The routes are different, but both groups will start and finish at the same place. CLICK HERE for a preview of the route map.
