Walk for Parkinson's 2021

When you Put Your Purple On May 8, you helped raise awareness of Parkinson's.

When you safely Walked, you moved our small, mighty & independent nonprofit another step forward.

When you raised funds, you helped us bring FREE social services, educational programs, research updates, resources, and advocacy to communities impacted by Parkinson's in the Northwest!

Together, we raised:
$66k
and counting!

Keep Walking for Parkinson's

You’ve got Parkinson’s? Better pack your tool kit.

Patience. If you’re not good at this, you need to practice. Everything takes longer with Parkinson’s, from tying your shoes to crossing a room, to formulating and speaking a sentence. It is maddening to shuffle through “off” periods when it can be torture to do everyday things like unload the dishwasher or do laundry. The only way to do this is one… step… at…a… time… patiently.
