2017 Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon/Mini-marathon—

Setting the Pace for A Cure to PD!

The Parkinson Support Center is proud to Partner with the Kentucky Derby Festival as an “Official Charity Partner” of the  2017 KDF Marathon/ Mini-Marathon

Every year more than 1.5 million people attend over 70 Kentucky Derby events including the Marathon and Half Marathon.  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.

Are you interested in running or walking for Parkinson’s disease? As a Parkinson Support Center Champion you have the option to run or walk in the mini (13.1 mile) or full (26.2 mile) marathon individually or as a team.

Join us by creating a fundraising team!

Family, Friends and coworkers can form fundraising teams and walk/run the KDF Marathon/ Mini-Marathon (individually or as a relay) in support of the Parkinson Support Center.  All proceeds will benefit The Parkinson Support Center and the individual Rock Steady Boxing Programs.   We ask that each champion raise $500 for our Center.

WHEN? Saturday, April 29, 2017

WHY are we participating? Exercise is an important part of healthy living for everyone. However, for people with PD exercise is not only healthy, but a vital component to maintaining balance, mobility and daily living activities (excerpt from pdf.org).

WHO can participate? Family, Friends and coworkers can form fundraising teams and walk/run the KDF Marathon/miniMarathon (individually or as a relay) in support of the Parkinson Support Center. All proceeds go directly to the Parkinson Support Center.
