GIL's Chapter Team
Someone is diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease every 9 minutes in the United States. And no one should have to face Parkinson's alone.
As the Development Director for the Greater Illinois Chapter, I proudly serve the Parkinson's community in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin. We provide free educational resources and programs, as well as community connections, research and training opportunities, and advocacy opportunities to people living with Parkinson's, those who care about them, and those who are working and fighting to end this disease.
Moving Day is an annual celebration of movement--Since exercise has been proven to slow the progression of Parkinson's symptoms. This year, we'll safely come together and honor the members of our Parkinson's community virtually, while participating in movement activities led on screen from the safety of our own homes. Afterwards, we'll walk as its safe to do so in our own neighborhoods.
Please consider joining our Team!
Thank you for your help supporting the vital work of the Parkinson's Foundation, Greater Illinois Chapter!
