The Parkingson's Health Development program is in our 8th year of serving Omaha and surrounding areas with affordable exercise. Our annual fundraiser, the UNMC Skate-a-thon, has provided us a way to reach out and attract donors, volunteers, teachers, grants, and most of all, awareness of the needs of those with PD. Thank you to anyone that has attended a class, shared a hug, shed a tear, or found their voice to encourage all of us to keep moving forward. The PHD program has been honored to be a part of this journey. Special thanks to UNMC and the Neuroscience department for a fabulous dinner and recognition for our program.
Our goal is to renew our boxing class here in town! Check out how the word is spreading: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/fighting-back-against-parkinsons-in-the-ring/
All our classes are listed on the calendar. You can sign up for a class online by selecting the class, or if you are new to our program, click on Register and Get Started for the forms needed for entry.
