Parkinson's Resources


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 return, once again, to Esther Short Park on September 24th!  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!

The success of our annual Sole Support fundraising and awareness walk rests on our supporters and YOU, our volunteers!  

When: September 24th

Where: Esther Short Park | Vancouver, WA 98660

Check-in Starts: 12:00pm

The success of our annual Sole Support fundraising and awareness walk rests on our supporters and YOU, our volunteers!  So thank you for donating your time and talents to help at our largest fundraising ad community event of the year!
