Parkinson’s Won’t Stop Me 5K

October 20 @ 7:00 am - 11:00 am

We want to thank everyone for their continued support of the Parkinson’s Won’t Stop Me 5K.  The event strives to assist the Parkinson’s Foundation raise awareness for this terrible disease. While we are very excited for the event Sunday, your safety is our #1 priority.  We have been in contact with Tradewinds Park regarding the tropical system that is currently over the Bahamas and is forecast to affect South Florida over the weekend.  The National Hurricane Center has predicted the tropical system will form into Tropical Storm Humberto by Saturday morning and will affect South Florida Saturday into Sunday. We are currently on the edge of the storms eye forecast cone and that is an indication we will experience tropical weather.

Knowing your safety is our first priority we have decided to reschedule the Parkinson’s Won’t Stop Me 5K to October 20, 2019.  Tradewinds Park has been very accommodating and also believes that this decision is in the best interest of safety.

Your registration will automatically be carried over to October 20, 2019.  If there is a conflict, your registration will be carried over to the 2020 event.  We truly appreciate your understanding and know that are only objective is your safety.



So many people in South Florida have been affected or know someone who has been affected by Parkinson’s Disease.  The 2nd Annual Parkinson’s Won’t Stop Me 5K – Honoring Miami-Dade Fire Fighter Paul Bersach will help the Parkinson’s Foundation raise money to help find a cure and help those affected.  Paul Bersach, a former Miami-Dade Fire Fighter, was affected by this unfortunate disease and this 5K will honor his name and help ensure other families do not go through what his family endured.  Paul dedicated so much of his life to helping others, including 30 years of service to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue.  Paul is blessed with a beautiful family, starting with his wife Toby and their three children Stacey, Andy, and Cindy.  The family is focused on continuing his legacy of giving.  Proceeds from the event will go to the Parkinson’s Foundation in Paul’s honor.  Your support is humbling and will help all those who are fighting against Parkinson’s Disease, which will be one step closer to a cure thanks to your support.
