Upcoming Events

We are a participate-at-your-own-risk, activity-based group. We do our best to give you all the logistical information on each event. It is up to you to decide if you have the physical abilities to safely attend an event. You take full responsibility if you choose to attend an event. We care for your well-being and will support your participation. We are not medical professionals. If you are at an event and find it exceeds your abilities or if you just need a rest period, SPEAK UP. Your safety is a priority.

We have several smaller groups that focus on the unique needs of our community.

All Member Events, Everyone in the Parkinsons community. People with Parkinsons, their family and friends and even a few dogs have been on our hikes.

WINTER SNOW FUN

Every winter we try to go snowshoeing or Cross Country skiing several times. Because these depends on the weather, specific dates are difficult to plan in advance. Contact Brian if you want to be put on a last minute email list. If the weather is looking favorable and you have time to go, anyone can “reply to all” and see who else has interest for that weekend. There is a $120 season snow park pass (Or $20+ per day, per car) that is needed at all of the 3 locations we go to along I-90. Carpooling can be arranged. Snow fun continues until there’s no snow, or no participants interested in still going up.

If you don’t own your gear but have interest in attending. The group has enough snowshoes no one should ever have to rent them. Cross country gear will need to be rented prior to the date. Brian can give you advice on rental facilities.

January 14, 2023, Urban Hike TBD. Save the Date.

This event is ALL members. PWP and their loved ones.

January 21, 2023 1:30-3:00pm Arcaro Boxing

This event is for People with Parkinson and RSVPs are required by 1/7/23.

We all know that exercise is good for us, no matter the ailment, but especially with Parkinson’s. The kind people at Arcaro Boxing on Capitol Hill have offered to host our group to a PD focused training session free of charge. They have all the equipment needed. You just need comfortable shoes, a water bottle, and a desire to make dopamine by sweating it out. Beginners are encouraged! This is individual exercises and bag work. There is no sparing between PWP. But hitting a bag in the name of PD really does feel good! Our friends and family are welcome to attend as spectators. A few interested have already mentioned going for coffee while we PWP kick our symptoms to the curb for the day. Details on that to be determined.

Carpooling can be arranged.
