About This Event
Parkinson’s Group of the Ozarks (PGO) is excited to announce that we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of our annual Pound the Pavement for Parkinson’s 5K Walk/Run. PGO is a non-profit organization based out of Springfield, Missouri with a mission to educate, support research, and improve the quality of life for people affected by Parkinson’s disease. We provide wellness classes, support group guidance, educational opportunities, and community awareness events for Parkinson’s families in the Ozarks.
Pound the Pavement for Parkinson’s 5K Walk/Run is our largest annual fundraiser and awareness campaign for the disease. When someone is diagnosed with Parkinson’s and is not aware of available community resources, they can often feel helpless and alone. This event helps bring a sense of unity and support to Parkinson's families who may feel isolated in their Parkinson's journey.
Pound the Pavement for Parkinson’s 5K Walk/Run will be held on Saturday, November 19th, 2022, at 8:30 AM at the Battlefield First Baptist Church parking lot in Battlefield, Missouri. We have averaged over 300 registrants and are expecting a similar turnout in 2022. All proceeds will go towards the event and our mission.
