(WIBW) - It's time again in Manhattan for the Speedy PD race.

The annual 5K/10K run raises money for the battle against Parkinson's disease.

This year's event is Saturday, Aug. 24, on a new certified course at Tuttle Creek State Park in Manhattan. In addition to the 5k and 10k runs, there is a half-mile family run/walk.

Same day registration begins at 6:30 am, with the races at 8 am. The family run walk is slated for 9:15 am. People can register online at www.runspeedypd.org.

Money raised benefits the Parkinson's program of Manhattan at Meadowlark Hills.

Organizer Michelle Haub and Parkinon's patient John Roberts and his wife Mary talked about the importance of the programs on 13 News at 4.
