Help Minnesota Man Reach His Goal of Raising Money & Awareness Sponsor 1 of his “200 Perfect Jumps for Parkinson's Disease"
Date:5/6/2010

Kevin Burkart , a 39-year-old businessman from Prior Lake, Minnesota, plans to do 200 skydives on Wednesday, June 16, 2010! to raise $60,000 for the Parkinson Association of Minnesota and the National Parkinson Foundation, and educate people about Parkinson’s Disease.

(PRWEB) May 6, 2010 -- No one has to tell Kevin Burkart to “go take a flying leap.” He will do it 200 times on Wednesday, June 16, 2010! Burkart, a 39-year-old businessman from Prior Lake, Minnesota, plans to do 200 skydives in one day to raise $60,000 for the Parkinson Association of Minnesota and the National Parkinson Foundation, and educate people about Parkinson’s Disease.

Burkart undertook a similar effort in 2008 when he completed 100 skydives in a day. Kevin’s dad, Gary Burkart, was diagnosed in June 1999 with Parkinson’s Disease, and Kevin began to look for ways to educate others and raise money for Parkinson’s research. He served on the Parkinson Association of Minnesota board from 2005-2007, but he wasn’t satisfied with that contribution. Looking to his hobby of skydiving, “The 200 Perfect Jumps for Parkinson’s Disease” project began. Kevin has already raised more than $50,000 from corporate sponsors and individual donations.

Groups and individuals can help Burkart reach or exceed his goal and honor or remember someone affected by Parkinson’s disease by sponsoring one of his 200 jumps. For a donation of $100, anyone can provide the name of the person and a brief story of their experience with PD to be read over the public address system during a jump. The donor will also receive an autographed photo of Kevin Burkart skydiving as a memento. Sponsoring a jump is a very special unique gift for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, birthday, or as a memorial.

Another way to support Burkart’s efforts is to watch
