Indianapolis, IN, February 16, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- The Indiana Parkinson Foundation (IPF) has received a grant for $20,800 from the Central Indiana Senior Fund. The grant was given to allow IPF to expand its reach to more than 50-75 more individuals living with Parkinson’s disease.
With the grant, IPF was able to hire a new Program Director, Addie Cunningham, to help with IPF’s planned expansion. Addie will be the liaison for all the current CLIMB locations and will help to expand The CLIMB locations to more areas in need. The CLIMB exercise program allows opportunity for physical recovery and prevention, and leaves room for reflection and connection to renew people with Parkinson’s disease for the work and pressures of their daily lives.
“The Indiana Parkinson Foundation is bridging a gap for those diagnosed and facing the unknown. With the support of programs and services specific to Parkinson Disease, the journey becomes an easier one. IPF’s programs not only provide connections, but also a community of hope,” shared Kim Williams, IPF Director.
In 2009, after a hard diagnosis, the Waterman family began the Indiana Parkinson Foundation (IPF) to help come along side those with Parkinson’s disease. Addie (Waterman) Cunningham is a co-founder of IPF and the new Program Director for the foundation. Addie has received her Bachelor of Science in Business Management and Master of Business Administration from Taylor University. She has been married to her husband, Eric for almost 14 years and they have 5 beautiful daughters. Addie and her family are members at White River Christian Church and enjoy serving in the youth ministry. Addie is looking forward to the opportunity to serve people with Parkinson’s through the Program Director role.
