About InMotion

InMotion is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping people manage their Parkinson’s disease, take charge of their well-being, and embrace the opportunities and challenges ahead.

Exercise in a group setting can be intimidating for people living with Parkinson’s, which is why we’ve taken special care to create a comfortable environment in which to explore classes and other offerings. The sense of community and comradery that forms among InMotion clients is truly inspiring; each day we see the healing effects of the encouragement and confidence that those connections bring.

The welcoming InMotion facility – located in Beachwood – opens up to a multi-purpose room for exercise classes, doctor forums and other presentations.

The space also includes a Resource Center filled with leading research, and rooms for healing arts therapy and support group meetings.

History

The organization was founded in 2014 by Dr. Karen Jaffe, a person with Parkinson’s disease and an advocate in the international PD community; Dr. David Riley, a neurologist and movement disorder specialist; Ben Rossi, an ACE fitness trainer and a qualified community exercise instructor for Parkinson’s patients and InMotion’s chief program officer; and the late Allan Goldberg and the late Lee Handel, both of whom were business leaders, philanthropists, and people with Parkinson’s disease.
