Our MISSION

POP is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt private foundation supporting the use of exercise and wellness to reduce the symptoms or slow the progression of Parkinson’s Disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. 

 

Support is provided by:

  • Providing financial and other support for people with Parkinson’s Disease;
     

  • Assisting People with Parkinson’s (“PWP”) and their care partners in overcoming impediments to making exercise and wellness a part of their daily lives.  This includes financial and logistical support that may not be available from other means;
     

  • Using communication methods including social media to increase awareness of exercise and wellness opportunities within the local Parkinson’s community;
     

  • Conducting periodic fundraising activities to maintain support of area PWPs and increase awareness of the benefits of various types of physical activity.

Thank you so very much to Power Over Parkinson's for today's [golf] outing. Eddie just had the best time and was able to feel good about himself with his golf game. We so appreciate you all!

...but the power behind POP is the fact that you know the debilitating effects of PD from the inside and are doing something about it in a big way.

The socialization and physical exercise components of POP are exactly what we need. Also, the seminars and zoom programs give us up-to-the-moment information on research that shows us a cure is just over the horizon. It would be very difficult to manage our PD without this kind of help.
