ParkinsonTulip: Support the Brilliant Awareness Month Challenge
April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month. Support the cause by joining PDF’s Irving G. Brilliant $100,000 Research Challenge!
Help Double Mr. Brilliant’s $100,000 Research Gift
If you help us to raise $100,000 in April … then your gifts will be matched dollar for dollar for up to a total of $100,000 through a very generous contribution by Mr. Irving G. Brilliant.
Mr. Brilliant, a long-time resident of Brooklyn, NY, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2003. Parkinson’s been a challenge for Mr. Brilliant, but he wants to make an impact on research this month by asking for YOUR help.
If you help to match his gift, this would double the funds raised to $200,000! Proceeds would enable PDF to fund additional Parkinson’s researchers to help us better understand the cause(s) of Parkinson’s and bring us closer to a cure.
Can we do it?
Help us to meet Mr. Brilliant’s challenge and reach $100,000 by Saturday, April 30! We’ll keep you posted with weekly updates on our progress or you can monitor the challenge online.
