Parkinson's Disease Community Unites to Find a Cure at the 15th Annual Parkinson's Unity Walk
Date:4/9/2009

First Ever Virtual Parkinson's Unity Walk Launched to Expand Participation and Donations

NEW YORK, April 9 /PRNewswire/ -- On Saturday April 25, the Parkinson's disease community will unite in New York City's Central Park for the 15th annual Parkinson's Unity Walk to raise awareness and funds for Parkinson's disease research. The two-mile walk, and educational community day, provides an opportunity for this community to come together to celebrate and recognize the more than one million Americans who are affected by Parkinson's disease and their families and friends.

"This year's Walk is a special one -- it marks 15 years since the inception of this monumental event in the Parkinson's community. At the first walk there were 200 participants, last year more than 10,000 people came from across the United States to fight to cure Parkinson's disease and to connect with others whose lives are affected by the disease," said Carol Walton, executive director of the Parkinson's Unity Walk. "On April 25, we will walk to eradicate Parkinson's disease, walking to provide hope, walking to find a cure."

Together, the Parkinson's Unity Walk and Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc., the proud partner and premier sponsor for the ninth year, continue to support Parkinson's disease awareness and partner in the development of needed tools. Understanding that, given the current economic climate, many people who want to attend the event in Central Park this year may not be able to do so, the pair teamed up to create the first ever Virtual Parkinson's Unity Walk. This year, participants can walk virtually with the thousands of others who will be walking in Central Park, by signing up at www.unitywalk.org. The website includes an interactive map of the United States that will highlight the locations of "virtual walkers," helping to illustrate the far-reaching
