Presenting #TeamBeatParkinson

#TeamBeatParkinson is an informal, dynamic community of people in Belgium that are helping researchers to find a cure for Parkinson’s Disease.

Patients, their friends, family and colleagues are combining ideas, energy and determination to raise vital funds to speed up scientific advances in order to eradicate this terrible neurodegenerative disease as soon as possible. As fundraisers, they share a common goal to beat Parkinson’s Disease. As such they are part of #TeamBeatParkinson. 

Every euro raised by members of the public and donated to Belgium’s Demoucelle Parkinson Charity goes straight to high-impact research programs, which are carefully selected together with the Michael J Fox Foundation.

Making a difference

By organizing events to raise funds or just asking friends and family to make an online donation, #TeamBeatParkinson members rally and mobilize their communities behind a common cause: to find a cure for Parkinson’s Disease.

Knowing that we CAN do something to improve our own, or our loved one’s, future is empowering and being part of a community of like-minded people that share the same goal is energising.

Whether we are the organisers of an event –big or small – or volunteer our time to support an event or even, simply, share information about what is going on, we feel part of something bigger and know that we are making a real difference!

Researchers are working hard to end Parkinson’s Disease and we are doing our part to help make that happen!
