APDA MA optimism walk 2019

On Sunday, June 23rd 2019, the American Parkinson’s Disease Association‘s Massachusetts Chapter held the 33rd Annual Massachusetts Optimism Walk for Parkinson’s disease at Bowditch Field in Framingham, MA.

The weather was perfect for this well-attended event, which gave patients, caregivers, friends, family members, scientists, and clinicians the opportunity to mingle and raise donations for Parkinson’s disease support, education, and research. Dr. Scherzer, along with Postdoctoral Fellow, Beatrice Weykopf, Study Coordinator, Idil Tuncali, and their families, represented the Brigham and Women’s Center for Advanced Parkinson Research. Please join us next time for a fun, family-friendly and non-competitive fundraising walk! Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Optimism Walk will take place virtually on Sunday, May 31st, 2020.
