To provide more protection for those in our community and reduce potential spread of COVID-19, we are suspending all programming for the Cedar Rapids Metro Parkinson's Association until further notice.
Recommendations to cancel all face to face programs are being made by the CDC, WHO, Iowa Chapter of the American Parkinson's Disease Association, the Parkinson's Foundation, and others in the healthcare community. The Iowa City Senior Center has also made the decision to suspend all programming and will not be open on the weekends.
If you are in need of anything we might be of help with during this time, please do not hesitate to contact us. We thank you for understanding.
All programs through May 31st will be held online. Our schedule is available under "Programs"
The Cedar Rapids Parkinson's Support Group was started in 2006 by a group of volunteers who had been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease to connect and support one another. The group has grown over the years, adding exercise and wellness programs. In 2017, the Cedar Rapids Metro Parkinson's Association was founded as a non-profit 501c3.

We are stronger together as we move toward a cure.
Your donation makes it possible for the Cedar Rapids Metro Parkinson’s Association to exist. Donations and sponsorships stay here in the community, to help those living with Parkinson’s Disease. Through donations, we are able to offer FREE wellness programs to our participants.
Physical activity and social connections have been shown to help improve the quality of life for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease. It is important to us to offer these programs by removing any financial barriers individuals may have that would prevent them from participating. The donations and sponsorships we receive help the Association to cover the costs of implementing the programs, including a facility to hold the programs.
