From the trampoline to the balance beam those battling Parkinson got the chance to use fun as therapy. 
 
The Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park in Meridian opened the fifty-thousand square foot facility to the Parkinson's community Sunday. About a dozen people took to the course. The organizer of the event said exercise is key when it comes to dealing with the disease. 
 
I noticed once I got out and started playing around, not only did I feel like a kid again but by the end of the day I was no longer shaking, and I was walking normally," Brad Perry, Advocate for Parkinson's Disease.
 
The owner of the park said he hopes he can help be a part of the solution in fighting Parkinson's Disease.
