Please join us for this very special event* where Dallas Area Parkinsonism Society will award our second annual Kenneth H. Cooper, MD, MPH Lifetime Achievement Award. Dr. Cooper has long been recognized as the leader of the international physical fitness movement and will be the keynote speaker for the event. He will share his vision that being connected to a group or class helps people accept their condition, and exercise helps their physical well-being.

The Lifetime Achievement Award, named after Dr. Cooper, is given to a worthy individual who has made significant contributions to living a healthy lifestyle through exercise, diet, and positive attitude. The first recipient was Charles Sterling, PhD, who developed the Move.Laugh.Connect. exercise program used in a number of DAPS classes.

This year, DAPS is honored to recognize Orville Rogers as the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award. Orville is a pilot, fitness enthusiast, and world champion runner with 15 world records.

Orville served as a bomber pilot in World War II and the Korean War. He began running at age 51 after he was diagnosed with a heart blockage at the Cooper Clinic. Now 100 years young, he can still be seen running the track at the Cooper Clinic. DAPS is honored to recognize Orville with the Lifetime Achievement Award and acknowledge his personal example, achievements, and contributions to the world of exercise.
