Mission Statement

Join us. Make every step count. To raise awareness and funds for Parkinson's disease research.

Description

The Parkinson's Unity Walk (PUW), is the largest grassroots event in the US raising funds and awareness for Parkinson's disease research. PUW began in 1994 through the dedicated efforts of patients, families, support groups, and friends who were affected by Parkinson's disease. Their main goal was to raise awareness and funds for research to find a cure for Parkinson's.

From the very beginning, 100% all of the donations raised by walkers and contributors has been and continues to be designated for research.Corporate sponsors and individual research foundations fund the operating expenses of the PUW.

Generous donations of time and service to the Walk have expanded fundraising and awareness well beyond earlier expectations. Donations from the Unity Walk have gone to support research for the seven major U.S. Parkinson's foundations.

The Unity Walk recruits volunteers to assist with their annual event every April in New York City's Central Park. Besides volunteering, there are other ways to participate in the event including: registering to Walk and sponsoring a Walker.
