PD Walkers 2010 Team ROCKS it AGAIN!!

Thanks to you, the 3rd Annual PD Walkers at the Des Moines Marathon was another success!!
We had 78 teammates participate in the 2010 Des Moines Marathon:

With your participation and support we are able to continue to help the Iowa Chapter of American Parkinson Disease Association. The IA Chapter helps fund the Iowa Information and Referral Parkinson Disease Center, helps with local educational conferences, helps Iowa PD Support groups and many more PD activities through the year. The Chapter also donates to the National Chapter to fund research to find a cure.

On behalf of the many patients, care partners, family members and friends who will be helped thanks to your generosity, thank you for your commitment to help us fight Parkinson's disease and raise awareness, one step at a time!

With Sincere Gratitude,

PD Walkers, Founder - LaDona Molander
