15th Parkinson's Unity Walk A Step in the Right Direction for Parkinson's Community
Date:5/7/2009

endance to ask a physician questions, receive free literature and resources from the Parkinson's advocacy groups and from event sponsors. This year's event also included an international presence, with Susanna Lindvall, Vice President of the European Parkinson's Disease Association addressing the audience, discussing the importance of worldwide partnerships in the fight against Parkinson's. The past, present and future of the Parkinson's disease community was also the focus of several other powerful speeches, including those from Former Attorney General Janet Reno, her third straight appearance, and Dr. Jean Hubble, Executive Director at Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

From individuals to large teams, walkers also had the chance to take commemorative photos at the Boehringer Ingelheim booth to remember the day and the time spent with loved ones who had gathered from all across the country.

In addition, Solvay Pharmaceuticals, Inc. debuted the "Message of Hope" Wall, on which visitors wrote their own messages of hope and inspiration for other members of the Parkinson's community. In commemoration of the Walk's 15th anniversary, Solvay donated $15 per message, up to 1,000 messages, to the Unity Walk and raised a total of $15,000.

More than 10,000 people, including 430 teams that were created to honor loved ones who battle the disease, walked along the tree-lined, wheelchair-accessible, 2-mile circular path, proudly displaying courage, hope, optimism, compassion, and community togetherness.

And, as pledged since the inception of the Walk, every penny raised continues to go directly to Parkinson's research. This is made possible through the Unity Walk's Premier Sponsor and Proud Partner, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc., our Diamond Sponsors, Solvay Pharmaceuticals, Teva Neuroscience and Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, our Platinum Sponsors LSVT Global, Medtronic, Novartis
