Event Description

Join us to bring more awareness to Parkinson's Disease in Eastern Iowa and support the Parkinson's community.

Our Community Walk has changed this year due to the "double whammy" of the pandemic and the derecho that hit Eastern Iowa on August 10th.

This year, we are partnering with the Parkinson's Foundation  for a VIRTUAL Parkinson's Awareness Weekend. We will be working our brains and bodies as you will have the opportunity to LEARN on Friday, December 4th at 12pm. On Saturday, December 5th you have the opportunity to MOVE with  a live, virtual activity session at 10:30am.

Friday, December 4th at 12pm via Zoom

LEARN: Nutrition & Parkinson's Disease

"A balanced diet is a foundation of good health. For people with Parkinson’s disease, a balanced diet is even more important. In Parkinson’s, there are some foods that may help to ease symptoms and support brain health, while others can affect the way medications work. The informed choice of diet can help people to live better with the disease."

With a wellness break led by Kris Cameron, Cedar Rapids Metro Parkinson’s Association.
