Throughout the year, we host educational events for patients, families and caregivers whose lives are impacted by Parkinson’s disease. We also host fundraising events to help support the work we do here at the Parkinson Association of the Carolinas. Our Move It! Walk events and other fundraising events are also a fun way for communities, friends and families to rally together with a common purpose and also make new friends.
