Upcoming Events


The Massachusetts Chapter’s annual fundraisers and events allow us to contribute to ongoing medical research, provide services for Massachusetts residents with Parkinson’s and spread public awareness about the disease. Volunteering, sponsoring and participating in these events gives you the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people with Parkinson’s, their families and their caregivers.
