Come run for Parkinson’s near Harrisburg Pennsylvania! The KnockOutPD campaign was created by the father and daughter team, Jake and Tammy.  Jake has lived with the debilitating effects of Parkinson’s disease since the age of 56.  Together they have made it their mission to help support other Parkinson’s disease Champions and raise funds for the Parkinson’s Foundation.   The proceeds generated by KnockOutPD fundraisers and events will directly support Parkinson’s disease research and treatment advancements.

Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a condition of the nervous system that affects a person’s movements.  Symptoms generally develop gradually but can worsen as your condition progresses.  With Parkinson’s disease, neurons in the brain will slowly break down or die leading to the signs and symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.  Although the cause of Parkinson’s disease is unknown, a person’s genes and potential exposure to certain toxins or environmental factors may play a role.  Help KnockOutPD support the National Parkinson’s Foundation by participating in a walk for Parkinson’s near Harrisburg.

Parkinson’s signs and symptoms may include:

  • Tremors
  • Slowed movement and rigid muscles
  •  Impaired posture or balance
  •  Loss of automatic movements
  •  Speech or writing changes
