AUSTIN (KXAN) — A local organization that aims to empower and help Parkinson’s patients is celebrating six years of serving the Austin community on Sunday.

Power for Parkinson’s held a birthday bash to celebrate.

The organization holds free exercise classes for people who have Parkinson’s and their caregivers. Research has shown that exercise is effective for treating patients suffering from the illness.
