Dolomite Fundraising Trek 2020


This 8 night, nine day mountainous hike in Northern Italy is to empower those with Parkinson’s disease to know “THEY CAN” and to inspire others around the world with Parkinson’s to do more than they ever thought possible! This adventure will take place from September 5 to September 13th, 2020. Training for the hike will begin in April with a kickoff hike at Lake Poway. We will stay in a combination of mountain “Refugios” (huts) and in small hotels sprinkled throughout the Dolomite mountains. Whether you hike with us virtually (we will tell you how) or join us in Italy this effort will reward you with power, friendships and a huge sense of accomplishment for years to come. We are so proud to be raising money for the wonderful Parkinson’s Association of San Diego….not only will we be healing ourselves but our altruistic endeavors will reward this wonderful community we live in. JOIN US!

Please donate to the event and/or sponsor a hiker
