20th Parkinsonís Unity Walk (NY)
April 26, 2014 - April 26, 2014
The Parkinson's Unity Walk (PUW) is a grassroots organization that hosts the Parkinson's community for a one-mile walk which increases awareness and raises funds for PD research. Donations from the Unity Walk support research for the major US Parkinson's foundations, including PDF.
Make every step count at the 20th Parkinson's Unity Walk, where 100% of donations go to Parkinson's research. The day includes a gentle one-mile walk, a program with speeches from the Walk's sponsors and information booths from PDF and other major Parkinson's disease foundations.
Be sure to stop by PDF's booth to pick up a 2014 Parkinson's Awareness Month t-shirt and free educational resources, and to meet members of PDF's People with Parkinson's Advisory Council, Board and staff.
