Thank you to all of those who joined us on Thursday, April 13th in recognizing 200 years of Parkinson's disease as we created one-of-a-kind tulip paintings during this fun Parkinson’s Awareness Month event!
This event was generously underwritten by Home Instead Senior Care.
In honor of World Parkinson's Day, April 11, and International Dance Day, April 29, more than fifteen dance organizations have come together to celebrate the vibrant diversity of Dance for Parkinson's programs in ten countries.
Every day or two, beginning April 11, Dance for PD will be featuring a different Dance for Parkinson's program, presenting documentaries, class videos and other resources that highlight the richness of Dance for Parkinson's practice around the world.
HAPS' Dance for Parkinson's will be featured on Friday, April 14th so be sure to visit www.danceforparkinsons.online to virtually celebrate!
Tune in on Saturday, April 29th, for the culmination of the project on World Dance for Parkinson's Day. You'll be able to dance your way from New York to London, Pune to Brisbane, Amsterdam to Tel Aviv, and many places in between.
It all happens at www.danceforparkinsons.online
HAPS successfully completed its 21st consecutive year as an official charity in the 2017 Chevron Houston Marathon! Thank you to all that participated to raise awareness for Parkinson’s disease.
This year HAPS competed fundraising efforts against those charities with Teams in Training programs and was recognized with 3rd Place Overall Top Fundraising Charity and Top Fundraising Team. What an outstanding end to a great season. Congrats to all Team HAPS MVPs!
Special thanks to our 2017 Marathon Sponsors:
