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 featuring the "Shake-a-Leg 5K"  has something for everyone--a short loop (0.3 mile) 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 from the LOCAL Parkinson's exercise Community, awesome t-shirts, and donuts sponsored by Anderson Convenience Market in the beautiful Elmwood Pavilion.


If you're looking for a change of pace, sign up for our professionally timed 5K Race--The "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 DJ Joey Dee 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!
