At RLG, we are proud to give where we live, work and do business. One cause that we believe in is the support and research on Parkinson’s disease. This month, we were proud to support the Pacific Parkinson’s Institute in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada with $25,000. This donation will be used to help fund the group’s advocacy, education, community outreach and research efforts.
