Team Captain Sole Mates BEND - 2022

Support Me

I recently registered for Parkinson's Resources' (PRO) annual Parkinson's disease awareness walk, Sole Support for Parkinson's.  It will be on Sunday, October 9, 2022 in Drake Park. We are hoping for the real thing this year, barring smoke, snow, and more Covid!  Check-in will be at noon and the walk starts at 1:30.  Both a 5K and 1K course are available.  My team name is Sole Mates when you sign up and/or donate. 

I've set a fundraising goal because I believe in the important work PRO does in the community to be of service to people living with Parkinson’s disease. I hope that you'll join me in my efforts by making a donation, registering to walk with me, or both!

As most of you know, Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive neurological disease affecting over 1 million in the U.S.  It is the second most common neurological disease after Alzheimer’s.   At this time, it has no cure, but comprehensive treatment can delay symptoms.  Besides medications, this includes exercise, support and education, all of which we offer in Central Oregon. These are all made possible by support from Parkinson’s Resources of Oregon (PRO) and YOUR donations.  I imagine most of you know someone who has PD and you can help their quality of life or others like them, by your donation of $10, $25, $50, $100, $500, or whatever you are able to do!  I've seen how PRO directs their funds to valuable services locally and encourage you to be as generous as you can!

Thank you for taking the time to consider my request, I’ve provided you a link to my page for a donation, and also to my team (Sole Mates) if you care to walk with me! If you'd rather make a donation by check, please mention my name and mail to: Parkinson’s Resources of Oregon, 8880 SW Nimbus Ave., Ste B, Beaverton, OR 97008. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible and you will be issued a receipt. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
