Celebrating the Benefits of Movement
The annual Parkinson’s Wellness Expo is the most popular event each year with the Greater Tallahassee Parkinson’s community, with over 250 attendees last year. The Expo features representatives from the medical community, pharmaceutical companies, home health care and assisted living facilities, fitness organizations, as well as exhibits, informative resources, and educational activities aimed at teaching people what it’s like to have Parkinson’s disease. Traditionally held at the Southwood Community, the Expo also includes an optional walk/run in three different distances around Southwood Lake.
The Expo showcases local resources available to assist people with Parkinson’s disease and their caregivers; educational activities that teach people what it’s like to have Parkinson’s; and exercise programs to fight the debilitating motor symptoms of the disease. Additionally, representatives from hospitals and clinics, fitness organizations, pharmaceutical companies, home health care and assisted living facilities and others are on-site to share their information with visitors.
Money raised from Expo sponsors and walkers supports the Parkinson’s Outreach Association with our mission to promote awareness for Parkinson’s disease and provide local support, information, education and advocacy for people in our community affected by the disease, including caregivers, family and friends. Sponsorship opportunities and benefits are listed below.
We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you at the upcoming Parkinson’s Wellness Expo in April 2019 at the Southwood Town Center!
