Thank you for your support at Walk Off Parkinson’s 2019.
For nearly 10 years, we have joined together as a community to defy Parkinson’s at our annual Walk Off Parkinson’s event – a motivational experience that raises awareness of the disease, as well as critically needed funding for PFNCA. Our utmost priority is keeping those we serve healthy and safe. Due to COVID 19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Walk Off Parkinson’s.
I am disappointed that we cannot gather in person to express solidarity with, and show support to, those aiming to live well with Parkinson’s. There is something special about seeing entire families walking arm in arm, people holding up motivational signs or the faces of people stepping on the field of Nationals Park for the first time. While we cannot reproduce the magic of Walk Off Parkinson’s, we are planning an inspiring virtual gathering in the fall.
As many of you know, PFNCA or the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area is an independent non-profit organization not affiliated with any of the many national organizations that focus on Parkinson’s. Funds raised at Walk Off Parkinson’s each year provide operating support for PFNCA’s programs that serve thousands defying the disease through exercise, education and social interaction. The virtual program in the fall will help PFNCA raise the funding needed for 2020/2021. We hope we will be able to count on you for your continued support.
