Bring your family and friends to this event which is open to all ages and abilities. Participants can sign up for a 2-mile Walk, Sports Tournament (flag football, volleyball, kickball), or both! Come listen to great live music by bands Drew Hagus & The DreadNots and Silicon Valley Houserockers. Enjoy a free lunch and learn more about the exciting breakthroughs occurring in our Parkinson's research aimed to close the gap between science and practical care.
