Fundraise as a PDF Champion

Have you seen the Pies for Parkinson's videos? See what it's all about here!

What's your passion? For Bill Black, it was his coffee company Chock full o'Nuts. So when his friend was diagnosed with Parkinson's, Bill parlayed his success in business to create PDF, the first nonprofit to focus on PD.

Today, hundreds of people who are also touched by Parkinson's are following in his footsteps. They are using their passions — whether business, biking, walking or baking — to fundraise for PDF. Will you join them?
