Hundreds stepped out Satur­day to raise money to fight Parkinson’s disease at the annual Moving Day event at the Wilson Family Y track.

The collaborative effort of the Na­tional Parkinson Foundation and its Central Savannah River Area chapter featured entertainment, activities and information geared toward helping those confronting the disease.

“We’re very pleased,” local president C.J. Mitchell said. “It was an excellent day.”

She said more than $3,000 was raised by the estimated 200 participants, pushing the group toward its $30,000 goal.

Those taking part in the walk around the Family Y track included people with Parkinson’s disease, family, friends and co-workers.
