A word from our members…

Through ParKanDo I have met some lovely people. I don’t feel so alone especially during Covid 19 and appreciate the fact that I’m not the only one with Parkinson’s.

The people in the group are friendly, non-judgemental and welcoming. Joining this group has been a very positive experience for me and the highlight of 2020!

I found ParKanDo to be an incredible source of support and strength and continue to participate via Zoom in meetings and dance classes.
