Event Info > While in NYC
We're excited to have you join us in New York City for the 21st Parkinson's Unity Walk! Here's information to help you plan your trip for the Unity Walk.
FRIDAY, APRIL 24, 2015 at the TODAY SHOW
Will you be in New York the day before the Walk? Help us raise awareness of the Parkinson’s Unity Walk and draw even more walkers to Central Park on Walk day. Join us in the early morning on the plaza of the Today Show as we stand together with banners and signs and with any luck, have two minutes of air time to promote the Unity Walk. More details about the specific meeting time and location to follow.
We've secured room blocks at reduced rates at several Manhattan hotels and in Jersey City, NJ. While the Unity Walk is located in Central Park, we've provided hotels at various locations and price points.
