Getting Involved

“Awareness of Parkinson’s leads to compassion, compassion leads to giving, giving leads to research, and research will lead to a cure.”
- Pam Quinn, research advocate

How can you get involved in the PD community? 

Whether it’s by sharing your personal story about a PD diagnosis, letting others know about your local educational event, displaying your works of creativity or raising funds to find a cure – there are many ways you can connect. 

PAIR Up for PD Research:  Help to bring about better treatments at a faster pace as part of our Parkinson's Advocates in Research program. 

Raise Awareness: Find tips for spreading the word, educating yourself and others and supporting the cure during April, and all year long.

Fundraise with PDF Champions: Support our work by joining PDF Champions, a group of inspiring individuals dedicated to the Parkinson's cause.

Find Community Events: Search for events in your area and submit your own by browsing our calendar. If you would like to find a support group in your area, call PDF at (800) 457-6676 to help you find one.

Get Creative: Browse works of art made by nearly 350 people with Parkinson’s or submit your own, through our Creativity and Parkinson’s Project. We welcome all creative works – painting, drawing, dancing, singing, jewelry, music and more.

Display the Parkinson's Quilt: The Parkinson's Quilt is the first global quilt project to focus the world's attention to the disease.  The quilt is now available for rental!  By displaying sections of the quilt in your community, you can help raise awareness of Parkinson's disease and help drive home the need to find a cure.
