Thank You

On October 28th, we hosted our Hope Soars and Help for PD Gala. The purpose of this Gala was to raise money to benefit the Hope Soars fund for Parkinson's research at Albany Med and to benefit Help for Parkinson's to continue providing support, education, and programs for our community. Equally as important, this Gala was designed to provide a fun and safe space to promote connectivity within member of our community.

We wanted to take the time to thank all of you who attended and/or donated. With your help, approximately $30,000 will be put back into Parkinson's research and programs to help you and future members of our community live well with Parkinson's!

Thank you to our special guests and speakers Trishna Begam from NEWS10ABC, Sarah Griffin, DPT, Eric Molho, MD, FAAN FANA, Damian Shin, M.Sc, Ph.D, and Congressman Paul Tonko.
