5K Training Program

This program is of particular value to People with Parkinson Disease (PWP) but is open to anyone for whom a 5K is a stretch. Family and friends are encouraged to participate, both to support PWP and to share in the enjoyment of a sociable and professionally coached training program. (Note: the long-term program held at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena will also continue seasonally.)  In addition to a chip-timed community goal race, the team will participate in Moving Day Los Angeles on October 21, 2018, and invites all members of the PD community to join us during training sessions!
