The EPDA European Unity Walk was a unique event that aims to raise awareness across Europe about Parkinson's disease and its impact on people living with the disease, their families and our entire society. Working in partnership with Parkinson Vereniging, the national Parkinson's disease association in The Netherlands, Friday 28 September was a momentous occasion.
The 1.6-kilometre procession gathered over 1,000 participants from across Europe including people with Parkinson's, their families, carers, supporters, EPDA national member organisations and representatives from the treatment industry.
The Living with Parkinson's - a series of films DVD was produced by Norges Parkinsonforbund (the Norwegian Parkinson's Disease Association).
This series of films provides a realistic picture of the challenges and opportunities faced by people with Parkinson's disease and their families.
This project was financed by EXTRA funds from the Norwegian Foundation for Health and Rehabilitation. The English version has been supported by Solvay Pharma and in cooperation with EPDA.
