Thank you for visiting our Fundraising Page for the APDA Virtual Optimism Walk. Please help us honor the memory of Thelma Keshinover by making an easy online gift today!

Thelma was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease around the age of 61. After her diagnosis, she enrolled in several research studies and helped to raise money and awareness in hopes of finding a cure. She passed on January 21, 2021, and upon her death, donated her brain to the Washington University Department of Neurology to further Parkinson's disease research. While she is no longer with us, Thelma's fight continues. Her family and friends hope to raise money in her honor to help others fight this devastating disease. 

  • Every 9 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 Parkinson's disease 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 online donation by clicking on the 'Support Me' button. You will automatically receive a confirmation email and I will be notified by email of your support.

Thank you, in advance, for your generosity. Together, we are celebrating Thelma's legacy and truly making a difference for those in need!
