The walk will be held on May 1 at Wolfe Park, 3700 Monterey Drive, St. Louis Park. People may register at or beginning at 9:30 a.m. the day of the walk. Wolfe Park is a rather small park with trails and a stream running through it. There will be food treats and prizes donated by Twin Cities businesses.

The Ruble family walk in honor of their husband, father and grandfather, Glenn Ruble, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1998.
