PosterGarden Donates 350 Trekking Poles to OHSU's Paws for Parkinson's Fund-Raiser

PosterGarden has donated 350 of its Portland Parks and Recreation Trekking Poles to help support the Parkinson Center of Oregon's "Paws for Parkinson's" fund-raiser. The event, held from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, June 21, at the base of the Portland Aerial Tram, will raise funds to further the center's mission of improving care for people with Parkinson's. 

"We are really happy to support such a great effort aimed at helping people right here in our community," said Travis Rigby, President of PosterGarden. 

The trekking poles, which PosterGarden produces as a way to support nine Portland parks and gardens, will be available free to all event participants with Parkinson's. In addition, registrants will also receive free admission tickets to the Portland Japanese Garden, Lan Su Chinese Garden, Pittock Mansion and Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. 

Constructed of sturdy, lightweight aluminum, the poles feature an ambidextrous grip, lanyard, tungsten carbide tip, and spring-loaded anti-shock system. For several years, PosterGarden has donated the net proceeds of trekking pole sales to the nine participating parks and gardens.

"This is another great example of how PosterGarden and our parks and gardens partners can make a difference here in Portland," said Wendy Mitchell, program director for the PosterGarden Fund for Arts, Culture & Gardens. "We're happy to be able to extend our support to other great causes whenever we can." 

The Paws for Parkinson's event features a 1K or 4K dog walk, vendor fair and silent auction. There will also be pet contests and other activities.
