The Peak Performers are back!

-- placeholder --

Mike Braitsch headshotDr. Mike Braitsch PT, DPT, founder and owner of Tribe Wellness, is a friend to many, including the Parkinson’s community.

Last fall, Mike put together an adventure involving a group called “Peak Performers.” They accepted the challenge to train for and then hike the highest peak in Texas, the Guadalupe Peak. The group was made up of people with Parkinson’s disease, their families, and their friends who train regularly with Mike.

For 2019, Mike and his Peak Performers are traveling to Oklahoma for a 3.5 mile hike. You can click here to register to join the Turner Falls hiking group! You'll train each week as a group, practice some walking and leg strength at home, and then travel to Turner Falls in Oklahoma on October 26, 2019, for a 3.5 mile hike!

Mike and his group have decided to use this hike to raise awareness of Parkinson’s disease and raise money for Dallas Area Parkinsonism Society (DAPS).  Each of the Peak Performers is asking for supporters to donate an amount that will go to DAPS, and we have created a special donation page for this event. You can use this link to donate money as a Peak Performer or in honor of a Peak Performer:

The Peak Performers have challenged themselves to “reach new heights.” Thank you in advance for any encouragement that you are able to give. Your support means a lot and will make a difference.
