APDA Northwest Chapter was founded by a dedicated group of volunteers to support the needs of approximately 60,000 people with Parkinson's in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska. We are a local chapter of American Parkinson Disease Association, which is the country’s oldest and largest grassroots organization serving the Parkinson’s community.
APDA aims to fulfill our mission locally by everyday providing the support, education, and research that will help everyone impacted by Parkinson’s disease live life to the fullest. This dual mission of helping people live better today, while also fighting for a better tomorrow is unique in the Northwest. We are able to accomplish our mission because of the generous support of our donors like Cameron Catering, Fremont Mischief, Trident Seafoods, and the Captains who donated their time, talent and treasure to make this fundraiser possible.

The story of Trident Seafoods starts back in 1961, when a 19-year-old kid with nothing but a dream drove an old Ford from Tennessee to Seattle, in search of a great adventure at sea. That 19-year-old kid was Chuck Bundrant. And that little “adventure” stretched into a 12-year journey across Alaska, aboard any ship he could find, discovering everything there is to know about fishing and crabbing along the way.
Chuck met two other like-minded crab fishermen in the early 1970s, Kaare Ness and Mike Jacobson. All three pooled their money together and built the Billikin—a 135-foot boat that not only changed the course of their partnership, but also changed the course of the entire seafood industry. The ingenious Billikin was the first vessel of its kind to feature crab cookers and freezing equipment aboard, so their fresh catch could be processed as soon as it was pulled out of the water instead of coming all the way back to shore.
Today, that dream is still alive and stronger than ever. Trident Seafoods is the largest vertically-integrated seafood company in North America, yet we still hold true to the same beliefs we held four decades ago. Now more than ever, we believe that fish is our future, because it’s the healthiest protein we can put in our bodies. And we believe that this gift from the oceans is one we can never take for granted. We treat the sea with the respect it deserves, working toward sustaining a thriving and abundant ocean for generations to come. Because we are fishermen at our core, and we have a bond with the ocean—when it prospers, we prosper too.
Chuck Bundrant developed an atypical form of Parkinson’s disease, PSP years ago. It’s taken a bit of a toll but hasn’t dampened his fierce determination or his passion for the fishing industry.
The “Catch” Captains and many Seattle fishermen have a story to tell about how Chuck Bundrant helped them at a crucial time…from leading competing fisherman safely through the ice pack with his helicopter to supporting fishing families when the fisherman was injured or ill. As a tribute, fisherman have gathered to raise funds for APDA.
