PD Active was founded in 2006 by a small group of men and women with Parkinson's disease (PD). We have grown tremendously and now serve a vibrant community of over 1,000 people affected by PD, and offer over 70 programs per month. Exercise and social programs, like the ones supported by PD Active, are scientifically shown to be essential for people with PD. PD Active is financially sound, supported by donations and grants and an active group of volunteers. PD Active has a working and engaged Board of Directors and two part-time staff.
