Why Sponsor?

Your sponsorship dollars will provide you with increased corporate or brand visibility while making a direct and meaningful impact on the lives of those affected by Parkinson's Disease here in Georgia.

An estimated 1.5 million Americans have Parkinson's disease. Parkinson's is a slowly progressive brain disorder resulting in the loss of dopamine production. Dopamine is the neuro-transmitter responsible for aiding in body movements. Symptoms include slowness of movement, tremor, muscle stiffness, and postural instability. To date there is no cure.

Gold Sponsorship - $2,500.00

This sponsorship could pay for the annual medical care for one Parkinson's patient. The financial burden of Parkinson's disease on individuals and their families is immense. According to the Parkinson's Action Network, drugs commonly used to treat Parkinson's disease cost between $1,000 and $6,000 per year per patient. Annual medical care, including doctors' visits, physical therapies and treatment for co-occurring illnesses (such as depression) is estimated at $2,000 to $7,000 for people in early stages of the disease, and is probably much higher for advanced stages.

Silver Sponsorship - $1,500.00

This sponsorship could pay for 75 hours of respite care for a Parkinson's patient.

Parkinson's disease takes a toll on caregivers as well. The advanced stages of diseases such as Parkinson's may require that patients receive around-the-clock assistance, which many times falls to family members. Family caregivers must guard their own health and look to respite care when necessary. APDA Georgia assists various programs through grants and scholarships to make these services available to the Parkinson's community.
