The Parkinson Support Center is proud to Partner with the Kentucky Derby Festival as an “Official Charity Partner” of the 2020 KDF Marathon/ Mini-Marathon.
Every year more than 1.5 million people attend over 70 Kentucky Derby events including the Marathon and Half Marathon. There are hundreds of participants in the Kentucky Derby Festival miniMarathon & Marathon who not only give of themselves physically, but give to others as well. For years, runners have used this race as a vehicle to raise awareness and funds for many local and national charities. We are proud to announce that Parkinson Support Center has been selected as one of the Kentucky Derby Festival (KDF) Marathon and miniMarathon charity organizations. As a charity organization Parkinson Support Center will partner with runners/walkers to raise awareness for Parkinson’s disease.
