2016 Carnegie Center 5K and Fun Run Raises $110,000 for Parkinson Alliance

Parkinson Alliance 5k

The 2016 Carnegie Center 5K and Fun Run held in West Windsor this fall raised a record-breaking total of more than $110,000 for the Parkinson Alliance.

The USATF certified and sanctioned 5K race and one-mile fun run brought together almost 800 runners and over 50 teams to help
raise funds for Parkinson’s research.

Gail Ruderman was awarded the King Award at the event for her service and dedication to the Parkinson’s disease community. The Bucks County Road Runners also presented the Parkinson Alliance with a donation in support of research.

Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative neurological disorder that affects at least one million people in the U.S. Every year, approximately 60,000 individuals are diagnosed with the disease. The Parkinson Alliance is a national non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds to help finance the most promising research to find the cause and cure for Parkinson’s disease.

“It is so important to unite and show support to individuals who are living with Parkinson’s disease today. Together, we can win the fight against Parkinson’s by helping to not only raise awareness about the disease, but also by raising funds to support research for better treatments and hopefully one day, a cure,” said Martin
Tuchman, chairman of The Parkinson Alliance.

The 18th annual Carnegie Center 5K and Fun Run is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017.
