CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -

The University of Virginia was filled with people Saturday morning pre-gaming with breakfast for a good cause.

Plenty of pancakes were served at the 15th annual Pancakes for Parkinson’s fundraiser.

The event was started after a UVA student's family member was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

Gabby Beard, a co-president of the event, says she's happy to help people any way she can.

"We get to see the people that it directly affects, and they're just genuinely sweet people, and they deserve a cure for this disease that they unfortunately have been stuck with," she said.

To date, the fundraiser has raised a total of more than $500,000.
