Portland Walk Raises Funds/Awareness For Parkinson’s
For the 5th straight year, PRO DJs provided sound and music for the 7th Annual ‘Sole Support for Parkinson’s Portland Walk’ held at Willamette Park in Southwest Portland. The walk is an effort to raise awareness and funds for Parkinson’s Resources of Oregon, a non-profit geared towards helping people with the disease.
This event is growing every year and 1,700 people turned out on Sunday, September 25, 2011, raising over $150,000 for Parkinson’s Resources of Oregon. Former Trail Blazer Brian Grant and Oregon Senator Ron Wyden were there to walk and meet supporters of Parkinson’s research, and it was a pleasure working again with Fox 12’s Stephanie Kralevich, who emceed the event.
Sole Support features lively music, community vendors, and children’s activities. Thank you Erin Cozart of Parkinson’s Resources of Oregon for the opportunity to again be a part of this important event.
