Parkinson's Disease is the world's fastest growing neurological disease.

Parkinson's affects 1 in 500 Canadians.

Over the next decade, Parkinson's is expected to double in the Southern Georgian Bay area.

The cause is unknown and to date there is no cure.

PD is know for its motor symptoms. For example, tremors, rigidity, slowness, shuffling gait, etc.

Non-motor symptoms can often be more numerous and troublesome. For example, insomnia, anxiety, restlessness in legs and pain.

No two "Parkies' share the exact same symptoms.

Loss of smell and small handwriting are very early signs of PD.

Regular daily exercise helps manage Parkinson's Disease symptoms.

Dancing and boxing have proven to be excellent activities to slow progress of PD.

People with Parkinson's Disease can have a good quality of life.
