Our mission is to help improve the quality of life for people living with Parkinson’s disease. We provide support, intense exercise programs, and education to encourage proactivity and a positive shift in perspective towards the future. We are devoted to helping people afflicted with Parkinson’s and their families to adapt, eliminating the all too common occurrence of negative self-talk and depreciating self-image accompanying this illness. We emphasize the possible enhancements to their quality of life and ability to perform and enjoy activities of daily living. We promote the concept of “moving forward” by creating a new, dynamic balance. Our strategic intervention is integrated and personalized, aimed to improve self-confidence and social interactions. We are a non-profit organization committed to:
- Granting scholarships for our intense exercise programs
- Raising funds for clinical trials to support the implementation of exercise regimens as part of Parkinson’s treatment
- And developing new programs specifically geared towards improving Parkinson's motor and non-motor symptoms
Our mission is to give those afflicted with Parkinson’s the tools and support they need to achieve a higher quality of life.
