FAQ 

Is there a fee to set up a program or to license the name?  

At this point and thus far, no.  PFP is a non-profit organization funded by grants and donations.  Our simple mission is to provide this program to benefit people facing the challenges of Parkinson’s disease.  

Why are PFP programs offered at no charge?  

PFP is a non-profit organization funded by grants and donations.  Our simple mission is to provide this program to benefit people facing the challenges of Parkinson’s disease. Though we (PFP) do not charge for the program, there may be fees at some facilities for entry, and/or trainer and equipment use costs. 

How are these programs offered at no charge?  

In most cases, the host facility uses grant money and/or Silver Sneaker rebates (available in most Medicare Advantage health insurance packages) to offset costs.  In the majority, PFP programs are offered to people with Parkinson’s at no charge and most extend that to care partners, as well.  Many host organizations donate the use of the space and equipment; and use community support, program, and or insurance funds to cover other costs. 

Are there pre-requisites to hosting or leading a program?  

While it’s a good idea to utilize certified indoor cycling instructors — and most locations do so — it is not required.  The program is simple to deploy.  The only requirement is that instructors watch the videos posted on the website to help them understand the limitations of people living with Parkinson’s.  We encourage facilities to tap into their existing staff / trainers since they are covered under your organization's insurance and liability policies.  Some programs are lead by volunteers and in some cases, that leader may be living with Parkinson's, as well.

Is there a fee to register for a class?

While PFP does not charge participation fees for classes, some facilities may require entry, use or other such fees.  The majority of PFP programs are offered to people with Parkinson’s at no charge and most extend that to care partners, as well.
