Leaders of Tomorrow
Parkinson’s Foundation Leaders of Tomorrow are an engaged group of people who are committed to making life better for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD).
Leaders of Tomorrow are adult children, grandchildren and family members with a loved one who is living or lived with Parkinson’s. Together, this committed group helps the Parkinson’s Foundation increase awareness and raise funds to support our mission.

Help us make better lives. Together.
As a member of Leaders of Tomorrow, you have a unique opportunity to help your local community and the greater Parkinson’s community. In addition to having a direct tie to the Parkinson’s Foundation, members also gain:
- Insight to Parkinson’s Foundation initiatives and programs
- Invitations to member quarterly calls with key Parkinson’s Foundation staff
- Access to building your PD community with other volunteers
- Exclusive volunteering opportunities
I hope anyone newly diagnosed with Parkinson’s takes time to feel those feelings, leans on a support system, and channels that fear into something that helps them feel stronger and makes them smile the way rock-climbing does for Mom.
