Putting for Parkinson's Presents $27,000 to the UC Gardner Center

On Feb. 1, Putting for Parkinsonís presented a check for $27,000 to members of the University of Cincinnati (UC) James J. and Joan A. Gardner Family Center for Parkinsonís Disease and Movement Disorders to support ongoing Parkinsonís research at UC and the center. 

Scott and Joy Layman, of Fort Thomas, Kentucky, are the founders of Putting for Parkinsonís, an annual golf event held at Highland Country Club which raises awareness and funds for research of Parkinsonís. Scott was diagnosed with Parkinsonís at age 43, after he began experiencing shaking hands, impaired speech and balance issues. Scott says that he is hopeful that the money donated to UCís Gardner Center is a means to an end to find a cure of Parkinsonís disease.

"Dr. Espay and the team of physicians who see me at the Gardner Center are like part of our family now,Ē he says of the relationships formed over the years.

Now in its ninth year, Putting for Parkinsonís has raised more than $230,000 and has benefitted Parkinsonís research at UC as well as provided support to specific individuals with Parkinsonís in need of special medical devices or home equipment. "When I was diagnosed, I had been very fortunate in my professional situation. For Parkinsonís patients who donít have that, we wanted to help in that regard,Ē says Scott, of the additional proceeds donated each year to one or two deserving individuals with Parkinsonís disease.

The date for this yearís Putting for Parkinsonís is set for July 13, 2018. For more information, visit putting4parkinsons.com.
