Community Outreach

Water Cooler Classic

The fifth annual Water Cooler Classic fundraiser will take place in the fall of 2017!
Our finals will again be at ZEN on the West End on Thursday November 9th. Businesses compete in in-house tournaments all around the city in September and October and then send their best foursome to the finals! This event provides a fun team building activity for area businesses, allows GAPS to step into the community and share our mission, and enjoy an upscale event at ZEN! In 2016 we raised over $35,000 to support our local programs.

The Greenville Area Parkinson Society in partnership with the Greenville Drive held the 4th Annual Strike Out Parkinson’s walk at Fluor Field on  April 22, 2017. The event is a celebration of what people living with Parkinson’s can do, and a forum for GAPS members, families affected by Parkinson’s, friends and neighbors to learn more about GAPS’ activities, and how funds raised are utilized LOCALLY. This we raised $54,000! That is 30% more than the 2016 walk!  Thank you to everyone who participated!


Join us on July 30th for the Greenville Area Parkinson Society Day!
