Marc volunteering on the day of the Walk

Marc Wilkofsky was a longtime supporter and a volunteer (for at least 10 years!) at the annual Unity Walk. One of his fellow volunteers shared with us the news about his recent death and we are saddened to hear of his passing.

Marc is part of the Walk’s history, from its initial stages and as it grew over the years, he continued to stay with us. He was part of our PR committee many years ago, and yes, he helped to edit our event brochures and materials. He even came up with one of our earlier event taglines – Freedom From Parkinson’s can be a Walk in the Park.

Marc worked professionally as an editor in the comic book industry and one of our favorite memories of him was when he showed us a comic strip he drew about the Walk. He was definitely passionate about doing everything he could to help out!

He never missed an event and he was always ready to assist on the day of the Walk with a smile!

Thank you Marc for your long service to the Parkinson’s Unity Walk and our entire community.  You and your dedication will always be remembered at all upcoming Walks to come.
