Capitol Market adds 5K walk to chili event

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Capitol Market has added a new event to its Green Chili Shootout schedule -- a 5k walk to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation and its mission to find a cure for Parkinson's disease. The walk, called the Fox Trot for Parkinson's Research, will be held March 16 at 10 a.m., just prior to the chili competition, which starts at noon at the Capitol Market. 

Parkinson's disease is a chronic, degenerative, neurological disorder with symptoms that typically progress from a mild tremor to a complete physical incapacitation. Event organizer George Manahan, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's three years ago, said he is organizing the event to raise money and to bring attention to the disease. The goal of the event is to raise $5,000 for the foundation.

Team sponsors for the walk include Highland Hospital, The Manahan Group, C&T Design, Brown Communications, Steve Payne Photography, Terry Mathias, Malone Consulting, The Arnold Agency, The Reale Law Firm, State Treasurer's Office, Connie and Pat Jones, Pierson Technical, Missy Spangler and Bev Luikart.
