Pass To Pass is a hike and a fundraiser for Parkinson’s disease research and awareness by including Parkinson’s people on the Washington State section of the Pacific Crest Trail southbound from Stevens Pass to Snoqualmie. Participants will include a mix of hikers with Parkinson’s and support hikers with additional mule support completing the hike from August 20-28, 2016. The team of 12 participants will average 9.25 miles with approximately 2,000 elevation gain per day for a total of 72 miles. The hiker team’s goal is to increase Parkinson’s awareness and show there is hope for future medical advances. As many as one million Americans live with Parkinson’s disease, and approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson’s each year. The goal of the hike is to raise $45,000 for Parkinson’s disease charities. To support the effort or for more information visit Passtopass.org. //
