Welcome to DAPS!

Welcome to the Dallas Area Parkinsonism Society (DAPS)! We are glad you have found us, and hope you will find this site informative.

DAPS offers many services at no cost to those affected by Parkinson's disease living in the Dallas area, including:

DAPS 8th Annual Non-Event is Underway!

Non-Event invitation

Our 8th Annual Non-Event is underway, and you all are invited to participate! We are celebrating the 100th Birthday of the National Park Service as we Tour Yellowstone National Park.

Since this is a "non-event", though, you don't need to book airfare or buy hiking boots. Just imagine touring Yellowstone, experiencing all the geysers and enjoying the wildlife. Then think about how your donation will help the people with Parkinson's here in the DFW area by helping DAPS provide exercise, speech/swallowing therapy, Dance for PD®, non-contact boxing for people with Parkinson's, and more, free of charge or at a reduced rate.

If you donate early, your donation will be matched 1:1 (up to $20,000)! With your help, we can reach the Pinnacle and beyond, providing funds for a sustainable future and growth!

So please, give generously and know that you are making a difference in the lives of those facing the daily challenges of living with Parkinson's disease.

Let's tour Yellowstone!
