About Parkinson's Unity Walk

Founded in 1994 by Margot Zobel, the Parkinson's Unity Walk is an annual event where the entire Parkinson's community gathers with the goal of not only raising awareness of the condition, but of raising donations for research. The Parkinson's Unity Walk has made a significant impact on the Parkinson's disease community since its inception, raising more than $9 million for Parkinson's research by uniting the community under a common goal of winning the war against Parkinson's disease. Support for the Walk has grown considerably each year -- from 200 participants at the first walk in 1994, to more than 10,000 last year. The event unites the strength and spirit of the seven major Parkinson's disease organizations: American Parkinson Disease Association, National Parkinson Foundation, Parkinson's Action Network, Parkinson's Disease Foundation, The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, The Parkinson Alliance, and the Parkinson's Institute. With 100 percent of donations given to research, the Unity Walk provides the public with an opportunity to help the Parkinson's community and change the lives of the millions of people suffering from the disease.
