Virtual 5K Run/ 1K Walk for Parkinson's
Time & Location
About The Event
UNITED FOR A CAUSE! In 2015 PJ Parkinson's Group was created and has hosted an annual walk-a-thon ever since. The mission behind our 5K run/ 1K walk is to help people better understand this progressive nervous system disorder and offer patients a caring environment full of support.
Unusual times ask for unusual ideas.
While maintaining physical distancing, we will have a virtual run/walk with people from all around the world. We will have a live stream to other countries like Iceland, Germany, Italy, Africa, and more. This will be a fun event and different than the most virtual events. People can see how folks in other countries walk/run and they will be able to see the nature and the culture of others. We will stream from a live studio with our emcee Matt Hinkin (who has PD) from WATE.
How can you participate?
Get your family and friends together and join from anywhere - your home, neighborhood, park around the corner... in the U.S. or all around the world. Every running/walking group will receive a link and access code to allow us all to connect while out and about or at home. You can also record your run/walk per video in advance and send it to us. We will you some instructions. Sign up your team under: www.PJParkinsons.com
