10th Annual Carnegie Center 5K and One Mile Fun Run
The annual Carnegie Center 5K and One Mile Fun Run for The Parkinson Alliance, held on Saturday, September 26, 2009, set many records. While celebrating our 10th anniversary milestone, this CC5K brought in the highest number of participants and sponsorship donations. Over 650 participants came to support this year’s event and helped raise over $70,000 in revenue, making it a banner year.
The CC5K is a family and community oriented event, uniting the Central Jersey community to support a great cause. This year, participants brought their teams and family, friends and co-workers, to partake in the USATF Certified 5K, Fun Run and post race activities that included moon bounces, refreshments, great door prizes, music, and, of course, the Awards ceremony. Awards were presented to the 5K’s top runners and teams. The Parkinson Alliance also presented the King Award.
The King Award recognizes a sponsor’s dedication and commitment to the Parkinson’s community. This year, The Parkinson Alliance was proud to present the King Award to GE Healthcare. Since 2003, GE Healthcare has continuously supported the CC5K with an increased number of participants and sponsorship. In addition to its support of CC5K, GE Healthcare has an imaging product called DATSCAN, used to help make the actual diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease.
Thank you to all our sponsors and participants for helping us get closer to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
