Meadowlark is alive. That was obvious from the moment we walked in the door.

The 10th Annual Speedy Pd Race for Parkinson’s was Saturday, Aug. 25, at Tuttle Creek State Park. The weather was nothing short of steamy, but it didn’t appear to rain on anyone’s enjoyment of the day and the activities. The party-like atmosphere in race headquarters was amazing! This year, more than any other year, it seemed as if people stayed longer and enjoyed their time with family and friends while recharging with Eastside & Westside Markets fresh fruit, Panera bagels, Cox Bros BBQ and Houlihan’s chips & dip.
The power of personal music and songs can be overwhelming for any individual. But for those affected by memory challenges and dementia, music can hold the key for communication, pleasure and easing frustrations and anxiety. It can also increase arousal, which can encourage participation in daily activities, therapy and eating.
Beautiful shade. Flat, paved walkway. Friends and family. BBQ, beer and fresh fruit. These are just a few of the wonderful things individuals of all ages and abilities may enjoy as they participate in the ninth annual Speedy PD Race for Parkinson’s Disease presented by UMB at 8 a.m. Saturday, August 26, at Tuttle Creek State Park!
