Choe's HapKiDo Fundraiser for the National Parkinson Fundation

Atlanta Martial Arts Schools working to assist National Parkinson Foundation

Cumming, GA (April, 2013) – Choe’s HapKiDo in Cumming and Suwanee prides itself in serving the community, and has a long track record of community service. An important part of martial arts is giving back to the community. To keep up this tradition of helping people in the Cumming and Suwanee areas Choe’s HapKiDo is hosting a fundraiser in the month of April in support of the National Parkinson Foundation.

From, National Parkinson Foundation Website
“Parkinson’s disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer’s, affecting about one million people in the United States and an estimated four million worldwide. The Center for Disease Control rated complications from Parkinson’s disease as the 14th leading cause of death in the United States. The prevalence of the disease is expected to increase substantially in the next 20 years due to the aging of the population in the U.S., Europe and globally, as well as an increase in the age-related incidence of the disease. The economic burden of Parkinson’s disease is estimated to be $6 billion annually in the U.S.
For over 50 years, the National Parkinson Foundation has focused on meeting the needs in the care and treatment of people with Parkinson’s disease. National Parkinson Foundation has funded more than $172 million in care, research and support services.
National Parkinson Foundation drives breakthrough research by bringing together the thought leaders at National Parkinson Foundation Centers of Excellence--leading medical centers around the globe that deliver care to more than 50,000 Parkinson’s patients. Through the centers network, National Parkinson Foundation creates a community of health care professionals dedicated to improving clinical care in Parkinson’s disease.”

To help support this cause Choe’s HapKiDo is hosting an event all throughout the month of April offering a month of classes in any of their programs for $75, and they will be donating all of the proceeds from this event to the National Parkinson Foundation.
