Team Riggle to host events to benefit Parkinson's disease

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

The Team Riggle Foundation will be hosting two events to benefit early-onset Parkinson's disease research on Saturday, Nov. 10. The event will be split into two parts.

The first part will be a tennis mixer from 1-5 p.m. at the indoor tennis center on DePauw University's campus. The second part will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Inn at DePauw's conference room and will consist of a buffet dinner. Internationally renowned blues and soul singer Tad Robinson will perform starting at 8 p.m.

Interested participants can join in for one or both events. Registration for the tennis mixer is $25, the dinner and concert is $50 or both for $75.

Scott Riggle, the president of the Team Riggle Foundation, was diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson's disease in September of 2010. With the help of his wife Jenny and their friends Keith and Annette Waterman, they have started the Team Riggle Foundation in an effort to raise money and awareness to fight this disease. There is currently no cure for Parkinson's disease, a degenerative condition which, among other things, leads to tremors, rigidity and loss of muscle control.

Scott Riggle is a patient at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minn. and plans to support the Mayo Clinic researchers with the funds raised by various events the Team Riggle Foundation puts on.

For more information or to sign up for the events, email Jenny Riggle at jennyjriggle@gmail.com. To register, include full name of attendee, additional guests, address, phone number and registration fee.

Checks should be mailed by Thursday, Nov. 1 to Team Riggle at 860 Robin Wood Pl., Greencastle. Tickets will not be mailed out, but held at the door.

  • My husband was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson's disease at 67. His symptoms were shuffling of feet, slurred speech, low volume speech, degradation of handwriting, horrible driving skills, and his right arm is held at 45 degree angle. He was placed on Sinemet for 7 months and then Sifrol and rotigotine were introduced which replaced the Sinemet but he had to stop due to side effects. We tried every shot available but nothing was working. There has been little if any progress in finding a reliable treatment, I quit my meds due to side effects. Our care provider introduced us to Kycuyu Health Clinic Parkinson’s herbal treatment. The treatment is a miracle. My husband has recovered significantly! Visit www. kycuyuhealthclinic. co m
