BENEFITING: PARKINSONS SUPPORT GROUP OF THE UPSTATE
EVENT: Fight 4 Parkinson's
EVENT DATE: Apr 13, 2013
Fight 4 Parkinson’s is a local fundraiser held to pay tribute and raise funds for individuals served by the Parkinsons Support Group of the Upstate.
Why do we need to Fundraise? The reason we need to fundraise is because we want to be able to provide more services to our members. There are at least 5,000 people in the Upstate living with Parkinson’s Disease. If we add in the families and care partners of the individuals that number s expands significantly. Currently, we have been reaching at best 300 people to date. We know that the value of peer group and speaker meetings are powerful and offer hope to people that really need it. To significantly grow our group it requires funds.
Its easy to make a difference! We are asking you to start a team to honor or remember a person with Parkinson’s. Teams can consist, of children, grandchildren, friends, neighbors, coworkers etc.(They don’t have to live nearby to be on your team and to fundraise).
We need you and your team to reach out to people that you know and ask them to donate money towards your team to benefit the PSGOTU.
On April 13th we will join together to celebrate the money that we have raised to Fight 4 Parkinson’s and the HOPE that we are providing to others living in the upstate.
