ParkinsonLink: Will You Be A Champion?

Parkinson's Awareness Month is just around the corner. This April, let's make each and every day count.


30 Events in 30 Days

Can you help us to champion PD research this April? By hosting a bake sale, donating a dollar, wearing the winning PD-shirt design (see below!), or running the Big Sur marathon, you'll help bring us closer to a cure.

  • Join the Marathon Team: Passionate about PD and hitting the pavement? Take on the world's "best destination marathon." PDF is forming a six-person team for the Big Sur Marathon on Sunday, April 28. Learn more here.
  • Bring the Cure to Campus: Keene State University held "Steps for a Cure." Beckfield Technical College put on a 5K. Call your campus to action in honor of your loved ones with Parkinson's. If you hold your fundraiser during April, your team could win one of two grand prizes. Learn more here.
  • Help Tulips Bloom for PD ... At Your Local Business: Gristedes Supermarkets in New York was the first to sign up for "Tulips Bloom for Parkinson's" in 2011. Do you know a local business that could help to raise awareness and funds by selling and displaying $1 paper tulips? Contact us at to learn more.
  • Get Inspired: Don't let us convince you. Let our PDF Champions do the work. See their stories here and follow us @PDFChampions and @PDFparkinson for daily updates.
