Parkinson's Resources of Oregon

Sole Support - Portland 2022


Each fall, Sole Support for Parkinson's unites hundreds of particpants and fundraisers from across the region in a day of support, community, celebration and purpose.  

Each walk location offers a ~1k and 5k walk rout option, creating a powerful opportunity to raise awareness and support for those living with Parkinson's and PD+, ensuring no one has to face this disease alone. 

Please consider joining us as a volunteer as we kick off this year's Sole Support season at Oaks Amusement Park on September 17th! Details are listed below.  Signing up for more than one role is encouraged (as long as timeframes do not overlap) and many of our opportunities offer the flexibility to volunteer AND walk with your team!
