Pinky and the crew

Pinky's Passion (for a Parkinson's Cure) ended its 5th annual Walk to the Future (A Future Without Parkinson's) $20,000 to the good.

Organizer "Pinky" aka Pat Erickson, said "Our costs have been totally covered by our sponsors - every penny brought in will go to helping people with Parkinson's. We are a 100% volunteer organization - donations will never go to salaries or office space."

This year, they had an international sponsor, Condor Airlines, who provided a $750 travel voucher as the prize for the individual bringing in the most in donations. That voucher was won by Lindsey Erickson Willis. Pat said, "As my daughter and a member of the Pinky's Passion Board, she is highly motivated."

It is still possible to donate to the charity, whose goal is to raise money, increase awareness and support research for a Parkinson's cure.
