Celebrate a Birthday/Anniversary
Many people turn their birthday or anniversary into an APDA fundraiser. Simply create a personal fundraising page and tie it to a birthday or anniversary celebration, or a special holiday, and invite friends, family, and colleagues to donate in lieu of gifts. Let them know that a gift to APDA is on your wish list!
The best gift can be a donation that supports a cause you care so much about!
Participate in an Existing Event
Running a half-marathon? Participating in a bike race? Turn your next event into a personal fundraiser for a cause you care about! With our online tools, you can easily create a fundraising page to let your friends, family and colleagues know that you’re about to take on a challenge and using it as an opportunity to raise money for support, education, and research for those affected by Parkinson’s disease.

Pay Tribute to a Loved One
Celebrate someone special in your life by creating a fundraising campaign in honor of or in memory of them. It is a wonderful way to pay tribute to someone who has had an impact on your life, and it gives others an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution in their name. Set up your fundraising page to let people know why this is important to you and then ask family and friends to show their support with a donation.
