Yellow Creek Sporting Clays - Parkinson


Yellow Creek Sporting Clays, Langston, AL, hosted a Parkinson's Disease shoot, Saturday, October 14, 2006. Danny and Carol Meenen, long time members of the sporting clays range, organized the third annual Parkinson's fundraiser. There were approximately 37 participants compared to 23 last year.

Carol was diagnosed with the debilitating disease almost 14 years ago. She serves as the co-coordinator from Alabama with the Parkinson's Action Network. She is also a member of the Parkinson Association of Alabama and the Huntsville Parkinson Disease Support Group.

The only way to find a cure for the dreaded disease is through research, a costly process. Through the efforts of the Meenen family and their friends, especially Barbara and Bob Stabler of Yellow Creek Sporting Clays, $12,000 was collected but there are still pledges to be added. When the final amount is determined, it will be given to The Parkinson Alliance in Princeton, NJ where the total amount of funds will be used for research to help find a cure.
