Join us for the Touchmark Parkinson’s Awareness Walk!
Saturday, April 22
10:30 am to noon
Check-in begins at 10 am.
April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month—the ideal time to walk and raise awareness about Parkinson’s disease! This walk is also raising money to support the American Parkinson Disease Association's Northwest Chapter, the largest grassroots network dedicated to fighting Parkinson’s disease.
The walk will take place atTouchmark on South Hill, 2929 S. Waterford Drive in Spokane. Everyone will begin at the flagpole in front of the community and can choose either of two routes:
The circular drive in front of Touchmark, which measures one-tenth of a mile. Total distance depends on the number of times around the circle.
A half-mile walk throughout the community.
All surfaces are paved.
Other activities include face painting, chair massages by Paulette Erickson, LMT, photos, and lunch (hot dogs, fruit, Cracker Jack®). Donations will be accepted to support the work of the APDA.
APDA works tirelessly to help people live life to the fullest in the face of this chronic neurological disorder. Since 1961, it has raised and invested more than $170 million for patient services, educational programs, public awareness, and research.
Touchmark offers a comprehensive program for people living with Parkinson’s disease that includes a Parkinson’s Disease Support Group and fitness classes:
PWR! Moves for PD

While not exclusive for people with Parkinson’s disease, these classes also may be appropriate:
