Finding Community at Sole Support for Parkinson's (Photo) - 09/27/22

On October 9th Parkinson’s Resources of Oregon (PRO) will host its annual Sole Support walk for Parkinson’s disease at Drake Park in Bend, OR.  The Sole Support walk is part of a series of events spreading awareness about this neurodegenerative disease with no cure. Funds raised remain in the local community to help people living with the disease through Parkinson’s Resources of Oregon’s (PRO) exercise, education, and wellness programs. 

Resilient Sole Supporters, such as Bend resident George Lee look forward to participating year after year. Lee, an early-onset client of PRO and active Board member says “In a way I feel like people with Parkinson’s disease are more resilient than most. For people who are just starting their journey with Parkinson’s, Sole Support is a great way to learn about resources and connect with a local community.” 

Hundreds of people living with Parkinson’s disease and their families and supporters will participate in this year’s walk to show their support and spread awareness about Parkinson’s disease.  Registration is required but free.
