Welcome! Gait Keepers was formed in 2016 by a group of individuals from Armstrong County who have been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease or love someone with PD. We have created a community to support each other and provide education about PD. The Gait Keepers team is open to anyone who supports individuals with PD, their caregivers, and their friends and family.
Our local group is an extension of the Parkinson Foundation of Western PA. Because of the PFWPA, we have access to a monthly support group for individuals with PD and their caregivers. With help from the PFWPA, we have been able to bring a PD exercise class to our local YMCA. Our group continues to grow, and we need your help to continue to be able to offer support services to our local community.
No one should have to fight Parkinson's alone. YOU can be the reason they don't.
If you join or donate to our team, you help to ensure:
- Exercise classes, support groups, and other programming that improves the lives of people living with PD can continue to be held
- Parkinson Foundation Western PA staff will be there to help and answer questions and concerns and give people with PD and their loved ones helpful resources
- The Foundation will have the means to stay on the cutting edge of treatments, providers, and other PD related topics.
On behalf of the 10 million people living with PD, thank you for choosing to make a difference.
