North Texas Giving Day


What a wonderful day! Thank you to all who participated in North Texas Giving Day by donating online or calling the office with your donation information. The money we have raised will go toward funding the exercise, speech, and support groups that we provide free of charge to those affected by Parkinson's disease.

Without your support and participation, we could not do what we do. With your donations on North Texas Giving Day, we raised more than $21,000—enough to fund approximately 350 hours, or about 17 weeks worth of group activities. Your donations will make a real difference in the lives of the people with Parkinson's whom we serve.

Thank you!
