Did you know 2,000 people here in the Coastal Bend suffer from Parkinson's Disease?
Saturday, a big fundraiser was held on Padre Island in order to provide local support. Bright and early, kayak races were held at Billish Park.
Food, entertainment, and even a silent auction were part of Saturday's fundraiser.
The funds will go to help the local Parkinson's support group.
The event raised a total of $10,000 dollars.
The money will go to help to local patients who might need support for medications. It will also go to the National Foundation to Help Find a Cure.
