Run for a Reason
PIPR - Partners Investing in Parkinson's Research
Amount Raised
Fundraising Goal $100,000.00

Our Message

In 2009, we set a goal of raising $1 million in support of research to help our family and friends living with Parkinson’s Disease. We reached our goal! Amazing work has been done by the Parkinson's Research Consortium with our contributions - we can't wait to see even more progress as we continue past this initial goal to keep up efforts to "put the boots" to Parkinson's.

The PIPR group has become a community of support and sharing. We are happy to come together during the race weekend every year, to celebrate our successes and plan for new ways to get funds into the hands of the researchers we've been so lucky to work with for the past several years. Why not join our team? Get your red shirt on and walk, run or roll with us in the family 2K this year! 

New this year: We are raising money specifically to find a way to energize dopamine cells through supporting Dr. Mireille Khacho and her team. If we can find a way to prevent the dopamine neurons that are targeted and affected by Parkinson's Disease from dying, we are just that much closer to solving this puzzle! This team is doing essential "basic research", but we think it sounds pretty involved from our perspective!
