Our researchers are decoding the mystery of Parkinson’s disease

While the exact cause of Parkinson’s remains a mystery, researchers like Dr. Michael Schlossmacher are determined to find the answer — and they’re gaining ground with some help from Partners Investing in Parkinson’s Research (PIPR).

Each year, Run for a Reason Team PIPR is dedicated to raising funds to help find better treatment options and a cure for Parkinson’s. They’ve donated more than $1.4M to date and are committed to Run for a Reason virtually this year to raise even more.
