Parkinson's Awareness

The Don Bohlander Parkinson's
Disease FundRACERS

Team Bohlander is committed to raising awareness and dollars toward the cause of curing Parkinson's disease. All funds generated go to support local Parkinson's research, education and awareness. We work collaboratively with Peoria Area Parkinson's organizations, including Central Illinois Parkinson's Support Group.

Parkinson's disease is a movement disorder that is chronic and progressive, meaning that symptoms continue and worsen over time. Nearly one million people in the US are living with Parkinson's disease. The cause is unknown, and presently, there is no cure...

BUT there is always HOPE!

Our team motto is "Parkinson's Is The Pits" but with your help, we can give hope to those living with the disease (and to the people who love them).
