Parkinson’s Disease is the fastest growing neurological disease, affecting more than one million people in the United States and six million worldwide with more than 200 people newly diagnosed daily. Parkinson’s In Motion improvement strives to to reach, inform, and connect individuals touched by Parkinson’s with tools for self-help and improvement to enhance quality of life. We also are committed to national efforts designed to end Parkinson’s disease, the cause of which is now know to have a strong environmental component. For the past 4 years our efforts to reach the underserved region throughout London and into the Appalachian Mountains of Eastern Kentucky have flourished; however, there is so much more to be done and so many we have not reached.
We are excited to announce that five from our leadership team have been approved to attend the 4-day “All In Summit” in Washington, DC in October hosted by Parkinson & Movement Disorder (PMD) Alliance, an independent, national nonprofit dedicated to providing opportunities for people to learn, live more fully and spark meaningful connections. What a great opportunity to connect, collaborate, and embrace the magic that happens when we come together to learn.
PMD is sponsoring a portion of the summit cost. Would you consider contributing toward travel costs not covered by PMD? Your generous donation of $500 or more will not only help fund this specific event but will further our mission and make meaningful impact for individuals in the Appalachian region touched by Parkinson’s. We are excited for this amazing opportunity to share our ideas on this national level and learn new ideas and approaches form others on this same mission.
