Gary Rogliano, a Richmond, Virginia executive known for launching business startups such as MAXjet Airways and INR Energy was recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. His first reaction to the diagnosis was to research the best methods for treating PD. He quickly discovered that in addition to long-standing drug therapies, one of the most effective treatments for this degenerative disease is exercise and physical activity.
After experiencing the benefits of such programs as the LSVT Global’s BIG and LOUD programs and his own personally developed multi-sport training program, Gary decided to create a charitable foundation to help other PD warriors take advantage of exercise and wellness programs and other programs designed to promote movement/activity that are not generally covered under Medicare and other typical health plans.
Today, Gary stays active in his business ventures and developing support systems for other PD patients while he continues his own aggressive attack against the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease through exercise. It is his goal to be the soft place for families to land upon diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease in the Central Virginia area.
