The Brian Grant Foundation (BGF) launches Team Grant, an online tool that allows people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) to set fitness goals, track their exercise activities, earn badges for working out, and connect with others in the PD community.

Team Grant members can create a profile where they can set fitness goals, track their exercise activity and monitor their progress. Each time a Team Grant member logs an activity on their profile, they are one step closer to earning a fitness badge. Users can also integrate their Team Grant fitness activity with a Fitbit wearable device.

Members of Team Grant will receive the latest information about managing Parkinson’s symptoms through diet and exercise, including fitness and nutrition tips, interviews with experts, profiles of people in the Parkinson’s community, and more.

They’ll also get updates from BGF founder Brian Grant, a former National Basketball Association player who was diagnosed with young onset Parkinson’s in 2008, a media release from the Brian Grant Foundation explains.

“Playing in the NBA taught me about accountability to my teammates,” Grant says. “Together, we were able to overcome great odds. I believe Team Grant can build that same culture for the Parkinson’s community so that we can live our lives to the fullest.”
