North County Parkinson’s Support Group (NCPSG) was founded in 1982. The original purpose of the group remains unchanged today: to provide Parkinson’s disease education, patient/family support, exercise and social opportunities, and support research.
Over the years, under the leadership of dedicated volunteers, the group expanded to more communities, and introduced programs to include social and exercise opportunities. With a vision of a greater service potential, the North County leaders invited the San Diego Parkinson’s group (now PASD) to reach beyond the City of San Diego for occasional joint educational events. That relationship grew over the years to the benefit of our entire region.
Our support of the Parkinson’s Association has continued. NCPSG members have been top fundraisers for Parkinson’s Association San Diego’s annual 5K Step-by-Step walk/run for several years. Financially self-sufficient for decades, we recently became our own independent non-profit. We continue to support the work of the PASD assisting underserved portions of our county.
