Get Ready & Get Set to Go— LOCAL!

Back by popular demand, Parkinson's Nebraska will be taking over beautiful Elmwood Park again this fall for a fun event for the whole family!  The Walk & Run the Park for Parkinson's  has something for everyone---a 1 mile loop through Elmwood Park is a great work out (or a leisurely stroll) for walkers, the park setting offers plenty of space for the kids to run around, entertaining performances featuring the Country Kickers America and groups from the LOCAL Parkinson's Community, awesome t-shirts, and a delightful picnic brunch sponsored by Anderson Convenience Market in the beautiful Elmwood Pavilion.


We are very excited about the addition of a professionally timed 5K Race--The First Annual "Shake-a-Leg 5K"!  Locally owned Peak Performance is teaming up with us to offer runners of all ages and abilities a refreshing 5K *(3.1 miles) course through scenic Elmwood Park!

You know that the people who bring you the Skate-a-Thon every year know how to throw a great party, and 96.1 Kiss FM's own Montez will show you that we know how to have fun even without ice skates!! 

As always— all of the funds raised at this event will stay right here in Nebraska to support the LOCAL Parkinson's community!
