PDF Advisory Council Member to Host Shake, Rattle and Roll Golf Tournament on Saturday, September 5
A.C. Woolnough, of Sandpoint, ID, is inviting his community to join him on the green to fight Parkinson’s disease. He is hosting a Shake, Rattle and Roll golf tournament on Saturday, September 5, to raise funds for PDF.
Mr. Woolnough is a trained Research Advocate and member of PDF’s People with Parkinson’s Advisory Council. Fighting Parkinson’s is especially important to him not only because of his own diagnosis, but also because of his late father who lived with the disease as well.
“It is because of my Dad’s influence that I have come view Parkinson’s disease not only for its difficulties, but also for the opportunities it provides to give back to my community,” says Mr. Woolnough.
