Every day we provide the support, education, and research that will help everyone impacted by Parkinson's disease live life to the fullest

Our Story

The Wisconsin Chapter of the American Parkinson’s Disease Association is honored to continue the legacy of the Parkinson’s Half Marathon, 5K & 1 Mile Walk. The Nasett family and friends have poured their time and talents into this event in the past. It has been the #1 fundraiser for the Wisconsin Chapter of APDA, with donations totaling over $400,000. An incredible achievement that’s possible because of YOU!

The proceeds of this race support educational programs and exercise classes for people with Parkinson’s disease and help provide financial support to Wisconsin families struggling to afford all of the additional costs of life with Parkinson’s. Simply put, your generosity helps to provide education and support to everyone in Wisconsin affected by Parkinson’s disease, helping them live life to the fullest.
