Former MLB Player Dave Parker Shares His Perspective on Parkinson's Disease

The American Parkinson Disease Association is one of oldest non-profits for Parkinson's disease.

The American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) is one of the largest and oldest organizations that is fighting for Parkinson's disease. The APDA was founded in 1961, and has raised more than $170 million to invest in patient services, education programs, public awareness, and research that looks into the complexities around Parkinson's disease to find a cure. They have local facilities that have a listing of events that are by you, and you can share your own experience and photos with Parkinson's disease on their website. They also have an annual Optimism Walk that is 1-3 miles long, depending on the location. You can also organize your own event under their name!
