Vitality Walk  
Vitality Walk | Sunday, June 1  
Wash Park in Denver, Sandstone Ranch in Longmont or Choose to Snooze!
This year we have a goal of 1,500 individuals walking together on Sunday, June 1st to raise awareness of Parkinson's disease in our community. While we are thrilled at the number of you who have already registered and astounded at how many new teams are joining us this year; we are still far from our goal. Currently there are 57 teams but only 306 registered participants!
