Central Coast 3rd Annual Parkinson
Our third annual walk for Parkinson’s was again a great success. We hold the walk each year in Pismo Beach, CA, because of the wonderful weather and scenery. This walk is sponsored by the Central Coast Parkinson’s Support Group and is hosted each year by JJ's at the beach, a local restaurant. The community is very involved with their wonderful donations of money or door prizes for our walkers. This is a walk at your own pace of either 1.5 miles or 4 miles and many of our members with Parkinson’s walk the four miles, which is a great inspiration to all of us. The walk originated in 2007 when Marie Bukey wanted to do something in memory of her mother who had Parkinson’s. She coordinates the walk each year and each year the walk has grown in size as more and more of the community becomes aware of our fundraising efforts to "Fund the Research - Find the Cure”. This is just another way for our support group to get the message out that our organization’s goal is to assist anyone associated with Parkinson’s in any way, be it patient, family, friend or caregiver.
