I Love A Parki
Someone you love has Parkinson's.
That sucks. But it's not the end. In fact, it's a new beginning. They've got a long road ahead, and they need your support.
You might be wondering...
How do I help? What do they need from me? Where can I learn more about Parkinson's Disease (PD)?
That's where we come in.
Power Out Parkinson's™ is a not-for-profit program created to promote the benefits of exercise for treating Parkinson's Disease, and to improve the quality of life for both patients and their families.
Here's how it works.
Exercise can reverse your Parki's symptoms like a miracle drug, but their PD is probably going to zap their motivation. So, you're going to need to be in their corner to give them support and to hold them accountable for staying active!
Start by joining the Facebook Group. Not only will you find great resources like online videos and a calendar of local events, but you'll find a PD-friendly community full of impromptu meet-ups, people sharing their stories, and more.
Next, join the P.O.P. Cycling Club on Strava. Cycling is one of the best exercises for PD, and when you log your miles for P.O.P. on the Strava app, you raise $ for PD while motivating your Parki to get out and ride with you!
Third, register for the Power Out Parkinson's Charity Bike Ride. Nothing will motivate you and your Parki to exercise like working toward a goal. You have until September 10, 2017 to train for stages of 10, 30, 50, 75 and 100 miles. Add your email address in our footer and we'll email you when registration opens.
Now it's your turn.
P.O.P. isn't just for people with PD. Take it from us - you've got a big job ahead, and you need to be informed when you're in your Parki's corner.
Check out these links (←) to learn about our story and the science of exercise for PD. If you're picking up what we're laying down, we'd love for you to check out our referral program to help us raise $ for PD.
You down with P.O.P.?
Before you do anything else, join the Power Out Parkinson's™ Group on Facebook. Remember - you're not the only one with a Parki who depends on you, so get support from those who've been there before. Now, let's tap into those underlying super powers. #ParkiPower
