DPT Students Hold 8th Annual Go BIG for Parkinson's 2k/5k/10k Walk/Run and Silent Auction

Each year our students come together to organize and run a unique event to help raise awareness and funding for patients with Parkinson's Disease (PD) in Arizona. This walk/run is your choice of distance. Not a fan of walking or running? They also have a silent auction, 50/50 raffle, kid's corner, and DJ there! The goal is to provide this population with funding for cheaper treatments while having a great time as an entire community stands behind them in support. The best part? They do the 2k with us! Come enjoy a family fun day and perhaps score some sweet deals on local business items on October 18, 2014 as you support your community members in need!
