We are always looking for vounteers and sponsors for these events. If you would like to help us make these events a success please call Mary Ellen at 860-248-9200!

Each year, the Connecticut Chapter of the APDA will hold this event to help raise money to support scientific research into the cause and cure of Parkinson's disease and to support families living with this disease. Whether you are able to join us, sponsor us, or support a beautiful event, we thank you for your participation. The event is a 1.5 Mile Walk, however walkers can walk any part of this or choose to enjoy the beautiful day and the many other activities.
