About Us

Who We Are

The Passion for Parkinson’s Foundation was created in 2014 by a small group who shared a common goal –a passion and dedication to raising awareness and support for Parkinson’s Disease.  Over the next 5 years the Committee continued to be a Fundraising leader for Parkinson Canada.  With the explicit intent to keep funds raised in our Community IN our Community the Committee founded a nonprofit Corporation in 2020.
