Our Team Fundraising Page

We need your help... 

On September 30, 2023, my family and I will walk in support of my Grandma, the strongest woman I know, my biggest inspiration. She has been battling this disease since being diagnosed in 2013. Her constant positivity and strong will is forever an inspiration for my family and I. Please donate in support of finding a cure for Parkinson's. I pray we find one in our lifetime! For now, picture my beautiful grandma and her "roses" with her, walking by her side!

There is strength in numbers and our team hopes you will join us in the fight against Parkinson's disease (PD) by donating today.  We have set a lofty goal and we hope to beat it because we know that every dollar raised makes a difference.  The more funds we can raise for the APDA Optimism Walk, the more people we can help in the local PD community, and that's more important now than ever.

Need some encouragement? 

  • Every six minutes someone is diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.
  • Funds raised enable the American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) to continue providing local education, information, and support to those touched by PD in our community and fund scientific research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and ultimately the cure.
  • The more funds we raise, the more people we can help!

You can make an easy online donation by clicking on the Roster tab, selecting a team member, and then just click on the 'Support Me' button on their fundraising page. You will automatically receive a confirmation email and we will be notified by email of your support. 

Thank you in advance for your generosity. Together we are truly making a difference for those in need!
