More than seven hundred people gathered at Tuttle Creek State Park in Manhattan Kansas Saturday for the 11th annual Speedy PD Race for Parkinson’s Disease.
More than $81,000 was raised by donations, sponsorships, and race fees.
The money raised goes to the Meadowlark Parkinson Fund to help support services for the community to improve the quality of life for all those affected by Parkinson’s disease.
With this fund, Meadowlark is able to continue and expand opportunities for education, outreach and much more.
Saturday’s event had more than 50 participants with Parkinson’s Disease and 10 of those completed the 5K event.
“So it’s just a true testament to what people can do when they are living with this disease, that they can..can do amazing things.” Meadowlark Hills Parkinson’s Program leader, Michelle Haub says.
