ABOUT US >

The Parrothead Club of Charlotte (PHCC) is a social club that promotes fun, friendship and good spirit all while supporting different charity groups on a local, state and national level. We like to say that we “party with a purpose”. Of course, we have also been known to party WITHOUT a purpose as well. You could say that we are all brought together by Jimmy Buffett and the tropical lifestyle he promotes but in the end; we live in a Carolina latitude with a tropical attitude.

Walk MS: Charlotte 2019

April 27, 2019

Team: Phlock MS

8am-12noon

Symphony Park, 4400 Sharon Rd, CLT 28211

 

We've chosen National Multiple Sclerosis Society (MS) to support this year. MS is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.

To support MS research, we are participating in Walk MS: Charlotte on Saturday, April 27, 2019.

One of our PHCC members (recently diagnosed with MS), has formed a team “Phlock MS” for Walk MS - an event that brings together a community of passionate people to connect and raise funds to change the world for everyone affected by multiple sclerosis.

As Parrotheads, we want to party the Phlock out of MS! We hope you will join our team. We're taking a step towards a world free of MS.

* Ways you can participate:

1. Join or donate team Phlock MS:

https://secure.nationalmssociety.org/site/TR?fr_id=30520&pg=team&team_id=589815

2. Opportunities to volunteer at the walk:

* Finish Line Cheering - must contact Missy with name & shirt size by 4/17

* Join us at our PHCC table before, during, or after walk in Team Village - contact Missy.
