About Walk for Parkinson's
Walk for Parkinson's brings everyone affected by Parkinson’s together to build community, increase solidarity, and raise funds for the Northwest Parkinson's Foundation. By supporting the Walk for Parkinson's, you are supporting programming, education, and care for people living with Parkinson's in the Northwest. Through extensive team building and leadership development, committed volunteers of all ages support people affected by Parkinson’s.
Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation was founded in 1998 to help establish optimal quality of life for the Northwest Parkinson’s community through awareness, education, advocacy, and care. We strive to reach all 100,000 people affected by Parkinson’s disease throughout the Northwest through every stage of the disease – from carepartners to young-onset patients, we’re working to create targeted programming for all Parkinson’s needs.
NW Parkinson's achieves our mission through many programs that support specialty care, produce and distribute free educational resources, host Parkinson’s community events, raise awareness of Parkinson's disease, and develop self-care tools. Our Social Services Manager guides those affected by Parkinson’s one-on-one, personalizing care to suit their needs. The Community Engagement Specialist creates programs that transform the way people live with Parkinson’s, from the newly-debuted Art and Movement Symposium to educational HOPE Conferences®. NW Parkinson's works with local communities of all sizes to identify and meet gaps in necessary services, advocating for specialized medical care and vital legislation.
Our challenge is clear: No one in the Northwest should walk their Parkinson’s journey alone. By supporting Walk for Parkinson's, you walk that journey with them.
