Join UsAs we plan our 4th annual Stepping out for Parkinson's walk, Barb and I look back on how much this event has grown. We have met many amazing people and have made many new friends. The people we have met on this journey have touched out hearts with their support and generosity. We could never have accomplished such success without all of you. This year we are hoping you will walk with us in honor or in memory of someone you have lost or someone who has inspired you and continues to do so. Please feel free to carry a sign, wear one of the ribbons we willl supply or make your own button or ribbons!

Hope to see you on June 8th!
