The Parkinson Alliance Presented the 2019 King Award to Boston Properties-Carnegie Center
KINGSTON, N.J., September 23, 2019 — The Parkinson Alliance presented Boston Properties-Carnegie Center with the King Award for their support of the Parkinson’s disease community for over twenty years, at the 20th Team Parkinson 5K and Fun Run at Carnegie Center held on Saturday, September 21, 2019, in Princeton, NJ.
The King Award recognizes the dedication and commitment of an individual, group, or organization to the Parkinson’s disease community. The Parkinson Alliance created the award in the memory of Joseph G. Fennelly, who was a generous philanthropist and dedicated volunteer of our organization. It is presented annually at our Team Parkinson 5K and Fun Run at Carnegie Center (previously known as the Carnegie Center 5K & Fun Run at Carnegie Center for The Parkinson Alliance).
Jerry Fennelly, our first race director, and son of Joseph G. Fennelly, assisted in the presentation of the award. Mark Hockenjos, who has also served as our race director and is Vice President of Property Management at Boston Properties received the award.
“We are pleased to announce that we presented this year’s King Award to Boston Properties-Carnegie Center. Our history and partnership with Boston Properties started even before the inception of our race at Carnegie Center. Over the years, the Boston Properties team at Carnegie Center has not only generously sponsored our annual 5K; they have also hosted us at their venue, partnered with us in planning and executing race day logistics, and supported our event with longstanding volunteers,” explained Carol Walton.
Previous recipients of the King Award include The Bank of Princeton, Borden Perlman, and Gail Ruderman.
