11th Annual Parkinson's Awareness Walk treks through New Hartford

By SPENCER DAVIDSON

NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. (WKTV) - Hundreds of local residents walked on the campus of Presbyterian Homes and Services for a good cause, Saturday.

The 11th Annual Parkinson's Awareness Walk took place on Middle Settlement Rd., and had many activities for both kids and adults.

The walk comes just days after the new hit NBC show, The Michael J. Fox Show, captured audiences with Fox's return to television, as well as added a comedic element that helped to shed light on the disease in which the actor, himself, suffers from.

All of the money raised from the walk will help promote further research on the debilitating disease with the hopes that it may one day be cured.
