The 2nd annual Robert G. Smith Walk to Cancel out Parkinson’s, was held Saturday, April 7th at Maidu Park in Roseville.
The Embarcadero Lions Club of Sacramento came together again this year to honor their former Lions Club Director who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and to help others in our local community who are living with Parkinson’s.
Last year the walk raised enough funds to give the Parkinson’s Association of Northern California approx. $25,700. The funds raised this year will also be going to the Parkinson Association of Northern California. PANC is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with Parkinson’s, their families and caregivers in our region. The PANC offers a variety of services including offering 30 various support groups in the region, caregiver respite opportunities for Parkinson’s family caregivers, ParkinsonWISE which is a exercise program as well as support research for prevention and in hopes to find a cure.
The Lions put on a fantastic walk that came complete with community organizations, entertainers such as the Sacramento King’s Cheerleaders, Rock Steady, and Sacramento Charity Cheerleaders and also fed everyone a wonderful lunch in the park after they finished what turned out to be a beautiful day in the park and great way to support a wonderful cause!
