One More Week to Make a Difference!
With one week left in Parkinson’s Awareness Month, the Irving G. Brilliant Research Challenge has raised more than $97,000! We have until Monday, April 30, to raise $3,000. Will you make the difference and help us reach our goal by donating today?
Spread the Word
There’s still time to show the world the impact of Parkinson’s this April. Get ideas from Linda Morgan’s film screening in Asheville, NC, or from the Hott Family’s “Wearing Grey” day in Beverly Springs, WV. Also see how Becky Jarnagin Pruitt worked with the local media to get the word out in Elizabethton, TN.
Educate Yourself and Others
There is still time to ensure you and others have access to the latest information. Several of PDF’s Research Advocates have been doing so through 25 “PAIR Up for Parkinson’s Research” educational forums, which discuss local Parkinson’s research studies, how you can get involved and serve to thank those who have participated in studies. Find one in your community.
Support the Cure
There is still time to support the cure. Get inspired by our PDF Champions. Michael Hornung, organized last week’s “Aqua-Thon Splash for a Cause” in Brooklyn, NY, while Linda Giorgilli was interviewed by her local television station. And don’t forget to visit PDF if you are coming to the Parkinson’s Unity Walk on Saturday, April 28, in New York, NY. Join the PDF Pacers team and stop by the PDF booth for educational materials and awareness gear!
