PDF Champions: Walk Over Water (NY)

April 27, 2014 - April 27, 2014

PDF Champions Nancy Redkey and members of the Parkinson's Disease Support Group of the Mid-Hudson Valley in partnership with the PDF Champions program. PDF Champions are some of the dedicated individuals who give their time and energy to raise awareness for Parkinson's and funds for PDF in their local communities.

Join PDF Champions Nancy Redkey and members of the Parkinson's Disease Support Group of the Mid-Hudson Valley as they host the fourth annual Walk Over Water to benefit PDF. The three-mile walk begins on the Poughkeepsie side of the park's scenic bridge.

New York State Senator Terry Gipson will present a proclamation declaring April Parkinson's Awareness Month in NY and commend the group for its efforts.

The support group has raised nearly $45,000 for PDF in the last three years from the walk, which is open to the public, and its annual letter writing campaign.

PDF educational materials, Parkinson's awareness bracelets and pins will be available at the park along with bottles of bubbles for children. For those unable to complete the entire walk distance, a limited number of free wheelchairs will be available and student volunteers will be in attendance to assist.
