Did you know that Orange County is home to approximately 6,000 people who live with Parkinson's? With all these people, it is surprising that many are still isolated and not connected to the OC Parkinson's community. The sooner you get connected to resources, the sooner you can start to live well with Parkinson's. Fortunately, Orange County is also home to many programs dedicated to helping those with PD and their loved ones. PD Buzz has a full list of fitness classes and support groups for you to check out. Like to sing or dance? Check out the OC Tremble Clefs or Rx Ballroom Dance. Want to meet others and go for a walk? PEP4U has a group that walks in the Laguna Niguel Regional Park every other week. The Orange County Parkinson's Walking Club meets monthly for a walk. We also have educational events and awareness events happening on a regular basis. You can find them on our events calendar. Can't find what you are looking for? Send us an email and we will try to find a group for you in your area.
In December, we asked you to let us know the joyful happenings in your life and you did not disappoint. Check out the video below to see the Joy Reports and the joyful artwork that accompanied them provided by Nancy Cordaro.

A note from Lauren Simmons:
I participated in Parkinson's Revolution last year and it was a blast! Don't be intimidated if you have never done a cycling class. There are a couple of different level classes and we are all there to have fun and raise awareness. Please join Team PD Buzz and have some laughs, get some exercise and support the Parkinson's Foundation. I hope to see many of my peeps there!
