Communities to Unite at 13th Carnegie Center 5K and Fun Run in Support of the Parkinson’s Community


(Kingston, NJ, August 30, 2012) – Together with the Parkinson’s community, hundreds of local runners and walkers have signed up for the 2012 Carnegie Center 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run for The Parkinson Alliance (CC5K), which will take place on Saturday, September 22nd in Princeton. 

This road race offers an abundance of amenities to a broad range of supporters.  In addition to a USATF Certified 5K, multiple communities are drawn together to raise funds and awareness; 100% of net event proceeds will go to Parkinson’s disease research.  The CC5K is a cause-oriented fall event for all ages, complete with a Fun Run and post-race activities which include moonbounces, clown/face painting, refreshments, DJ, and door prizes.  Fun Run participants will receive medals.  5K awards will be presented to top 3 teams, and top 3 male/female in various age categories.

“With support from surrounding communities, The Parkinson Alliance promises to continue the momentum generated from previous years.  Each year, we strive to increase this event’s impact for those living with Parkinson’s and their loved ones,” noted Carol Walton, CEO of The Parkinson Alliance.  In 2011, over 600 registered participants, with runners from the age of five through 77, raised closed to $70,000.  Hundreds more came to support the cause and cheer on the runners.

To date, twenty nine corporate sponsors have chosen to support the 2012 CC5K.  Eight in-kind sponsors will provide refreshments, massage therapy, security, and cleaning services.

The 2012 King Award will be presented to Platinum Sponsor, First Choice Bank.  Created in memory of Joseph G. Fennelly, a generous philanthropist and long term volunteer of The Parkinson Alliance; The King Award recognizes a sponsor’s dedication and commitment to the Parkinson’s community.  Randy Hanks, President and CEO of First Choice Bank, will accept the award.
