January 2013 Updates
Walk Day is 3 months away: April 27, 2013


A Rhode Island Team since 1997

As we move forward in this New Year, we would like to pause and remember the late Marilyn Lamendola, a tireless advocate for the Parkinson’s community. She started taking action back when the Walk had only 500 walkers. Her ideas helped us to grow; she was the first person to arrange bus trips from out of state! They’ve been walking since 1997 and this year, Marilyn’s team members walk on in her memory. Remembering Marilyn.
