We had an absolutely amazing time at our annual Polo for Parkinson’s event! Here is a round up of some of the amazing images that we captured.
WPF Co-Founder, Bill Wilkins, is a Parkinson’s patient since 2006. He is one of the original members of the Michael J. Fox Foundation’s Patient Council, and a charter member of the Emory University Udall Center of Excellence in PD Research Community Outreach Board. The Wilkins Parkinson’s Foundation, through events like Polo for Parkinson’s, works to increase collaboration among other Parkinson’s nonprofits and to advocate on behalf of the entire Parkinson’s community. Funds raised at Polo for Parkinson’s will be directed to research, education and awareness.
“The opportunity for breakthroughs has never been greater,” says Wilkins. “Advances in Parkinson’s research are likely to significantly contribute to the understanding of other neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s, ALS and Multiple Sclerosis. We are proud to have raised more than $500,000 for research and awareness through events like Polo for Parkinson’s, and we hope this year will be our most successful.”
Make sure to be on the look out for next year’s event! We look forward to seeing you there!
