There are many reasons to attend the Unity Walk! Watch our video and hear from walkers, teams, sponsors, and organizations about their Walk experience - and reasons to join the Parkinson's community.
The Parkinson’s Unity Walk is the largest grassroots fundraiser for Parkinson’s disease research in the country. 100% of donations support research funded by seven major Parkinson’s foundations. In addition to raising awareness and funds for research, it is a day of community and education with representatives from sponsors and foundations sharing information and resources with members of the Parkinson’s community.
The Unity Walk has grown from 200 participants in 1994 raising $16,000 to over 11,000 participants in 2015 raising over $1.7M for research.
Donations are distributed to the following seven U.S. Parkinson's disease foundations:
