Gerald T. Parks Memorial Foundation 5K Run/Walk
Gerald T. Parks enlisted in the Navy in 1949, eager to serve his country to the best of his ability. Over the next 21 years, he raised a family, achieved the rank of Chief Petty Officer, and inspired two future generations of his family to join the armed forces. Upon his death on February 7, 2006, his family formed the Gerald T. Parks Memorial Foundation to collect funds to develop advanced military healthcare facilities. Through donations and their annual 5K run/walk, the foundation seeks to further the military's ability to deal with injuries sustained in modern warfare.
The staff helps boost confidence levels for successful streaking escapades with Fit body wraps, and turns dingy teeth into pearly whites with 20-minute teeth-whitening treatments.
