MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - A walk at Warner Park Saturday raised awareness and funds for Parkinson’s Disease.

The American Parkinson’s Disease Association Wisconsin Chapter hosted the Optimism Walk. The event included a mile walk, a rock steady boxing demonstration, music and food.

“They have a community of support and fun, you have an activity where other people come and support you and I think it really lifts people up,” said Patti Batt, Rock Steady Coach.

Free will donations went to the organization to help fund research and treatment.
