We need your help...
The University of Minnesota has been a long time partner with APDA-MN and with a common mission to make an impact on Parkinson's Disease. The University Medical teams and Researchers have been well-know around the world for their contributions to the field of Parkinson's Disease and other neurological conditions, and for Neuromodulation as treatment for these conditions. The recently established University of Minnesota Udall Center of Excellence for Parkinson's Disease Research (https://udall.umn.edu) works both to find a cure and advance treatments while also providing state-of-the-art care for patients and their families. Similarly the APDA at a national level funds research to advance a cure while at the local levels like our APDA Minnesota chapter focusses largely on the community by providing direct-to-patient grants, education programs and awareness events like the Optimism Walk. We look forward to seeing you on September 14!
There's strength in numbers and our team hopes you will join us in the fight against Parkinson's disease (PD) by making a donation 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.
Need some encouragement? Every 9 minutes someone is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
Funds raised enable the American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) to continue providing information, education, and support to those touched by Parkinson disease in our community and fund scientific research into the causes, prevention, treatments and ultimately the cure.
You can make an online donation by clicking on the Roster tab, select a team member and 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!
