Celebrate #GivingTuesday 2022
November 3, 2022|
The Peterson Foundation for Parkinson’s Celebrates #GivingTuesday, joining millions around the world participating in the global generosity movement on November 29, 2022.
Founded in 2009, the Peterson Foundation for Parkinson’s is a non-profit with a mission to support and enhance lives of people with Parkinson’s disease, their care partners, and their families to achieve their highest possible quality of life through awareness, education, and programs within a caring community.
This will be PFP’s third year participating in #GivingTuesday. It is estimated that more than 6,400 people in Middle Tennessee are diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. As the Middle Tennessee Parkinson’s community grows, PFP has also grown from one support group in 2017 to 8 support groups in 2022! Our goal is to continue to increase educational resources and programs for those living with Parkinson’s, their families and care givers. You can help us achieve this goal!
“As a small nonprofit organization with limited funds, we turn to Giving Tuesday and ask for help to raise the money needed to continue to grow our support groups, educational offerings and activities.” states Brent Peterson, Founder and Board Chair of the Foundation.
