On Tuesday's "The Extra", host Shannon Brinias focused on the Parkinson Association of the Rockies (PAR), which, in 1981,began as a small collection of support groups and currently provides services to meet the needs and challenges the Parkinson’s community faces each day. The group is marking its 40th anniversary in 2021. Guests Jodi Brown, Executive Director, and Seth Dean, Director of Development discussed critical programs and services which have a meaningful impact on the quality of life for those affected with Parkinson’s disease. They also talked about an upcoming fundraiser, the Vitality 5K, set to take place simultaneously in 4 Colorado cities on June 6th. The location in Colorado Springs is Venezia Park at Briargate Parkway and North Union. In Pueblo, the site is the Pueblo Riverwalk. You can also do the walk in a virtual way to allow more people to participate from their own venues. More information can be found at parkinsonrockies.org or by calling 303-830-1839.
