White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham joined members of Northwestern Memorial Hospital's Parkinson's disease support group during their exercise class on Tuesday. Beckham was at Northwestern Memorial to announce the second year of his Out of the Park for Parkinson's campaign. For every homerun Beckham hits this season, a donation will be made to the National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) to fund research, education and outreach programs to improve the lives of people with Parkinson's. Northwestern Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center is the only NPF Center of Excellence in Illinois. The Center provides innovative, multidisciplinary care, while also conducting research to extend knowledge and treatment of movement disorders. There's also an emphasis on providing education and support for patients, families, caregivers, healthcare providers and the community.
