What is Team Parkinson's?

Team Parkinson’s is an enthusiastic group of supporters who raise funds and awareness for the Northwest Parkinson’s community. Now in its 15th year, Team Parkinson’s has raised over $1.2 million and inspired more than 1,500 people to walk, bike, hike and run to support the cause. Together team members have finished more than 305,000 miles on their journey toward hope and wellness. 

By joining Team Parkinson’s, members commit to raising funds and awareness for Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation. Through the NWPF’s website, members create personal donation pages and recruit supporters to help raise funds for their efforts. Members receive online community support from fellow team members and the joy of raising funds and awareness for the Parkinson’s community.

Participation in Team Parkinson's is however, not restricted to the STP or A Walk in the Park. Individuals and groups are encouraged to create their own activity - be it a run, walk, swim - and use the Team Parkinson's platform for inspiration and motivation while raising needed support for Parkinson's care.
