APDA NW Every 9 Minutes 2021
Join us on October 18, 2021Donate To This Event
Every 9 minutes someone in the US is diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Every 9 minutes a family is confronted by an uncertain future. Every 9 minutes someone becomes a care partner.
EVERY 9 MINUTES is an APDA fundraising campaign that will run through November 5. The goal of this year's event is to pay for resources, education, and support programs for care partners and families impacted by PD. The role of care partner can come about suddenly - without warning or permission – following a loved one’s diagnosis with Parkinson’s disease. There are no instructions, no rulebook, and no clear guidance for a future with PD. Often it is difficult for a care partner to access needed resources. APDA wants to change that with an increased focus on programming and support specifically for care partners. With your fundraising help we can provide professionally-led educational support series, create targeted programming, and expand our virtual caregiver support groups. Our goal is to provide education, connections, support, and resources to help everyone impacted by PD live life to the fullest.
Show your love for all families impacted by PD by supporting our Every 9 Minutes fundraising campaign. This is a chance to share your story with your friends, family, and colleagues, and become a vital fundraiser for Parkinson's disease! Proceeds from this event will pay for support, education, and resources right here in the Northwest. It is easy for you to start raising CRITICAL FUNDS for Parkinson's disease, and TOGETHER we can make a difference!
