About Team Parkinson

Who We Are

Formed in 2000, Team Parkinson (TP) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to raise awareness regarding the impact of Parkinson's disease on society, empower people living with PD, and raise money to support the scientific research required to find the cure. Under the guidance of The Parkinson Alliance, the TP staff and volunteers work year round toward the goal of raising funds for research to find a cure for Parkinson's disease.

TP is an official Charity of the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon and has been a presence in San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Orlando, Duluth, Big Sur, San Diego, Sacramento, London (England) and other cities as well.

How You Can Get Involved

What We Guarantee
Under the guidance of The Parkinson Alliance, we proudly guarantee that 100% of all net proceeds go directly to Parkinson's research.
