Paul Blom's Moving Day Page!
I am participating in Moving Day® Twin Cities, benefiting the Parkinson's Foundation.
My journey with the Parkinson's Community started nearly 20 years ago when a colleague asked me to get involved in the Minnesota Chapter of what was then called the National Parkinson Foundation. At that time I didn't have a personal connection, but today I have thousands of them all over the country! You see, I eventually became Chair of the MN Chapter and then Chair of the National Chapter Advisory Committee, and ultimately served as Interim CEO of NPF from July of 2015 through January of 2017 after we merged NPF and PDF to create Parkinson's Foundation and brought John Lehr on board is the new CEO. It's been quite a journey! Please consider joining our team and helping suppor this amazing organization!
Why Move for Moving Day?
Did you know that someone is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease every 9 minutes in the United States? No one should have to face Parkinson’s alone. That is why the Parkinson's Foundation provides a community of support to give people the resources and help they need to live well with Parkinson’s.
Support our mission to help every person diagnosed with Parkinson's live their best possible life now. Your gift will help us fund better research, better treatment and better lives.
