Dear Northeast Ohio PD Community,
InMotion and Parkinson’s Pals have come together to build awareness about PD.
We are combining our efforts to help improve the lives of those living with Parkinson’s disease!
InMotion and Pals serve the PD community with a united vision. Whether through highly targeted programming or in hosting successful fundraising events, our goal is the same: help improve the lives of those living with PD. Community support plays a large role in both of our organizations and it shows! ...

On Feb. 28, 2017, InMotion founder Karen Jaffe and I (her husband Marc) spent the day on Capitol Hill along with 200 other advocates, meeting with Representatives and Senators to express the concerns of the Parkinson’s community.
This was the first year that the Michael J. Fox Foundation had organized this day, having recently combined with The Parkinson’s Action Network.

Bruce Sternberg, of Around Downtown Catering, kicked off the evening with a cooking demonstration of his delicious Garden Vegetable Chowder.
