New to 2011 Parkinson's Unity Walk, Participants Can Fundraise on Facebook Using boundlessFUNDRAISING

Here at Parkinson's Unity Walk, we’ve got exciting news that will help participants boost their fundraising total, thus increasing funds raised for Parkinson’s disease research!

Registered walkers can raise money for this year’s Unity Walk through Facebook!  By adding the Parkinson's Unity Walk boundlessFUNDRAISING™ application to their Facebook page, they can now extend their fundraising efforts to their networks of friends on Facebook.

Here’s how it works:
* Once you’ve added the Parkinson's Unity Walk boundlessFUNDRAISING™ application to your Facebook, you’ll have a fundraising thermometer on your Facebook page where you and your friends can check your progress and donate to your efforts.  Your friends can click a link from the thermometer to make a donation towards your participation in the Unity Walk. It’s that easy!
* The application is offered to registered walkers.  Once you register, look for the “fundraise with facebook” icon on your confirmation email.  Or log-in to your headquarters and look for the icon.
You can update your status on your profile frequently to let your friends know about your participation and fundraising progress, including thank-you notes to donors, information about fundraising activities, and invitations to join your team.  As your fundraising total increases, the application will send stream stories to your Facebook page with updates on your fundraising progress.

We hope you’ll get started now!   Register for the 2011 Walk and add the Parkinson's Unity Walk boundlessFUNDRAISING™ application to your Facebook today!

Thank you for your support of the Unity Walk!
