The Kirk Gibson Foundation was created in 1996 to provide college scholarships to students – both athletes and non-athletes – at Waterford Kettering and Clarkston High Schools. Kirk’s parents, Robert and Barbara, taught at these schools for many years and bestowed upon Kirk the value of education and community.
After being diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2015, Kirk expanded the mission of the foundation to raise awareness and funding for Parkinson’s Research. By promoting collaboration, cooperation and teamwork the Kirk Gibson Foundation strives to impress the significance of this to patients, caregivers, neurologists, therapists, researchers, scientists, family, and friends. When we all collaborate, optimum benefits result.
