Sunflower Rev It Up for Parkinson's, A Legacy of Giving for Parkinson's Research

The James J. and Joan A. Gardner Family Center for Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders is proud to present the Sunflower Revolution, A Legacy of Giving for Parkinson’s Research. Our center is focused on bringing the latest in research-driven Parkinson’s care to improve quality of life for our patients and future generations. The annual Sunflower Rev It Up for Parkinson’s, including both a patient symposium and WALK/RUN/RIDE event, supports us in this effort. The Sunflower Rev It Up for Parkinson’s WALK/RUN/RIDE will take place on Sunday, September 11, 2022. This wonderful community event benefits research happening right here within the center and educational programming such as the annual patient and caregiver symposium.

About the Event: Sunflower Rev It Up! WALK/RUN/RIDE

THE WALK/RUN/RIDE attracts approximately 1,000 attendees including those who are personally impacted by Parkinson's and those looking to make an impact on Parkinson's research and education in our region. The WALK/RUN/RIDE event includes a 1K walk, a 5K walk/run and a 60K bike ride through downtown Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
