Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower those impacted by Parkinson's disease to live active and fulfilling lives.

Description

At least one million people are living with Parkinson’s in the US and every nine minutes someone receives a new diagnosis. Approximately 165 Americans are diagnosed every day with Parkinson’s - an equivalent to 60,000 new people each year. Though the average age of someone diagnosed with Parkinson’s is 60, people are being diagnosed at an earlier age, called Young-Onset Parkinson’s. While there is hope in a cure and new treatment options for the future, it’s time to rally supporters and empower the Parkinson’s community to start leading fulfilling lives now.
The mission of the Brian Grant Foundation is to empower those impacted by Parkinson’s to live active and fulfilling lives. BGF was established in 2010, following Brian’s diagnosis of Young-Onset Parkinson’s in 2008. BGF serves as an inspirational and informational resource for people living with Parkinson's and their loved ones, providing affordable exercise classes, wellness retreats, nutrition resources, community building, and more. We are committed to providing those who are impacted by Parkinson’s with a community that fosters mutual support so that no one will feel alone.
