VIDEO – Moving Day 2014

We wanted to share this quick video of Moving Day 2014. When our community comes together we can create real change!

Stay tuned for the 2015 video from Moving Day!

VIDEO – A Team Approach in Fargo Minnesota

Take a look at the Fargo community and all that they are doing to help people living with Parkinson’s disease. Great programs and wonderful health practitioners work every day to support PD patients.

National Parkinson Foundation Minnesota is proud to be a part of these great strides forward in the fight against Parkinson’s.

35W Bridge Lighting Video

In honor of Parkinson’s Awareness Month, the 35W bridge was lit up in Parkinson’s blue. Our Past President, Paul Blom interviewed Michael Molloy, who is living with Parkinson’s Disease, about his experiences and his advice for other individuals on the same journey. He also incorporated some information from various health professionals with extensive knowledge of PD research and care.

Combined with the beautiful visuals of the bridge, this short video is meant to increase awareness of Parkinson’s Disease and all that you can do to help. Be sure to check out the Moving Day® Twin Cities website, here.
