Parkinson’s Foundation Appoints Utah Tech CEO Cory Pinegar as President and Board Member of Newly Formed Rocky Mountain Chapter Board of Advisors

The appointment is set to increase area resources and further elevate awareness of the disease, which has impacted the Pinegar family

The Parkinson’s Foundation has named visionary entrepreneur Cory Pinegar as President of the Rocky Mountain Chapter Board of Advisors and Board Member. Still under 30 years old, Pinegar is the youngest board member and hopes to leverage his leadership skills and expansive network to help expand the foundation’s impact.

“It’s an immense honor to be selected by the Parkinson’s Foundation to further the foundation’s presence in the Mountain West as president and board member of the newly formed Rocky Mountain Chapter,” says Cory Pinegar. “This cause hits especially close to home since my father was diagnosed with the disease in 2016 when he began exhibiting early-stage symptoms.Working with the Parkinson’s Foundation will help drive my personal mission to ensure people like my dad receive proper treatment and one day, a cure.”

Pinegar’s appointment will also increase the foundation’s focus in his home base of Salt Lake City where he will work to raise awareness of the disease as well as advocacy for those affected by it.

The Parkinson’s Foundation will host a series of Rocky Mountain area events, including the Parkinson’s Revolution Salt Lake City on June 11 at Torrent Cycle in Salt Lake City. This indoor cycling experience (45-minute spin class) combines passion, determination, and community to generate awareness about Parkinson’s and help advance the foundation’s mission toward a cure. It’s free to participate, though everyone is encouraged to fundraise to help support the foundation’s work and the free resources the organization provides to the Parkinson’s Disease community.
