World Parkinson’s Day is 11 April. It was the birthday of James Parkinson, most famous for publishing ‘An Essay on the Shaking Palsy’ in 1817. The publication established Parkinson’s as an internationally recognised medical condition.
The 23rd Walk will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2017 in New York City's Central Park. (Rain or Shine)
100% of donations go to Parkinson’s disease research funded by six major U.S. Parkinson's foundations.
In addition to raising awareness and funds for research, we are also a day of community and education! Visit informational booths which will include Ask the Healthcare Experts, and meet with representatives from sponsors and foundations sharing information and resources with members of the Parkinson’s community.
