Ping Pong for Good is a movement for brain health. We are on a mission to improve the quality of life for those living with neurological conditions (such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, MS, and ADHD) and promote better brain health at any age. We work with experts in neuroscience, physical fitness, active aging, and table tennis to develop a new protocol for therapy and fitness with exercises and drills inspired by the game that make playing ping pong a brain training activity with therapeutic benefits.

They will allow for our continued momentum and will bridge the gap as we wait for funding from our grants and committed pledges. These costs include the development of the "ping pong therapy" protocol, physical therapists and trainers, venue costs, equipment, table tennis coaches, fitness experts.

THE LEAGUE is a community of monthly donors who are champions for all those who are impacted by degenerative brain disorders and decline and the people who love them.

We have also heard from the caregiving community and the providers who serve those living with these conditions associated with aging and brain diseases. that they are seeking programs like ours. Our programs provide a fun and beneficial way for people to engage physically, socially, and mentally while building community, even across generations!
