Life can change dramatically after a Parkinson’s diagnosis. As the disease progresses, it’s not uncommon for family members and friends to take on physical challenges to honor loved ones and support the cause. We are inspired by the athletes going the distance to #EndParkinsons! Hear from three PDF Champions, our grassroots fundraisers, about what motivates them to take on challenges for PD … and learn about spots on our running team in 2017!
This Veterans Day, the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF) honors veterans who have served our country, including those touched by Parkinson’s disease. In particular, we recognize the veterans on the PDF team who continue to serve the community by helping us to end Parkinson’s disease. Here are a few of their stories.
There is nothing like the special bond that exists between grandparents and grandchildren. That’s why, when a grandparent is diagnosed with Parkinson’s, grandchildren are often driven to help the cause. At the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF) we are often asked, How can I make a difference in honor of my grandma/grandpa with PD? In light of Grandparents Day this Sunday, we are sharing a few favorite stories from grandkids on the PDF team. Get inspired and find ideas for making this Sunday special for your grandparent with PD.
This summer, PDF has been especially inspired by our dedicated group of PDF Champions. These grassroots fundraisers have truly put their passions — whether running, cycling, flying, hiking and hosting garage sales — to work to help PDF #EndParkinsons. Here are their stories.
