Race for Parkinson's

Is there a minimum I need to fundraise?

There is no minimum number to fundraise in order to be part of our team. You will find that the fundraising component of your training and then race day just makes the energy of the moment even more powerful. $5 – $10 donations add up. So don’t be shy and ask! 

When do I get my registration fee back?

When you cross the finish line! Just send us a selfie w/ your medal and we’ll then take care of your registration fee. This holds everyone accountable to finishing what they started! 

Do you have race ideas?

There are races for everyone! Even kids! From a 5k to a Turkey Trot to a Tough Mudder and then all the way to a full IRONMAN. We’re here to help you find a race that will make the most sense. 

Can my company host a team?

100%. We love working with companies – whether it be joining another race or even setting up their own race. It’s an incredible way to bond, set goals and challenge each other. 

Can I do multiple races?

Don’t threaten us with a good time! YES, YES, YES! We encourage continued activity, so please! 

Experiences

Can I submit an experience?

It’s actually very helpful for us to get an understanding of incredible experiences you’re dreaming of. We aim to get our experiences donated by partners or sponsored by individuals, so know what you’re looking to accomplish helps  everyone. 

Can I apply more than once? 

Unlike our regular PWF Wellness Grants, our extraordinary grants are only one-time experiences. That’s why we aim to make it count! 

What is the typical size of the experience grant?

This is heavily dependent on the experience and the partners we’re able to facilitate to make it all come to life. 

Can anyone apply? 

Yes! As long as an individual has Parkinson’s, we encourage them to apply. Depending on the offering, limitations may apply. 

My experience gets filmed?

That’s right – we do our very best to bring a small film crew to film you before and after your experience. This gives you a special way to hold on to the moment plus it helps us in sharing with partners the incredible meaning of living life for today. 

Can an experience be repeated?

This will depend on each experience. If you see something that excites you and it has been on your bucket list, don’t hesitate to reach out to us and inquire about it.
