Parkinson’s Unity Walk Partners with Teva to Raise Awareness of Parkinson’s Disease

(March 3, 2014) – The Parkinson’s Unity Walk is partnering with Teva Pharmaceuticals on a multi-media public awareness campaign, “CommUNITY: Carrying the PD Torch,” to support Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients during Parkinson’s Awareness Month in April.

Carol Walton, CEO of The Parkinson Alliance, the umbrella organization for the Parkinson’s Unity Walk, will join representatives from Teva in Philadelphia on April 2, 2014 to launch the campaign. The Rocky statue in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art will be covered in tulips to raise awareness of PD. The campaign will culminate at the Parkinson’s Unity Walk on April 26th, when a “torch” of tulips will be brought from the Rocky statue to the Walk with follow up at Teva’s booth and on social media sites.
