CBS News 8 Anchor Carlo Cecchetto will emcee the event that will feature speakers from the Michael J. Fox Foundation and the Davis Phinney Foundation. An expo and entertainment are part of the festivities and the walk is dog friendly.

Proceeds from the 5k enable the Parkinson’s Association of San Diego to make available critical resources to the estimated 60,000 individuals in San Diego County who have or are affected by Parkinson’s disease. All funds raised from the event will stay within San Diego County.

The walk commences at 9:00 AM, with check in starting at 7:30 AM. Fee is $50 which includes a Step by Step 5k Walk t-shirt. Donations are tax-deductible per IRS guidelines.

PASD is offering free rides (contributions toward the rides are welcome) to and from the 5k Walk for those requiring assistance. Rides are provided through FACT (Facilitating Access to Coordinated Transportation) www.factsd.org with whom PASD holds a contract. To request a ride, call 888-924-3228 no later than Wednesday, April 3. One companion may travel with the rider at no cost. Rides are subject to availability on a first come, first served basis.
