The 15th Parkinson’s Unity Walk will take place in Manhattan’s Central Park on Saturday, April 25th.
And on Wednesday, February 11th, we brought people from the PD community together to celebrate this special event at a Kick Off Reception. The event was held at the Gabarron Foundation, Carriage House for the Arts in New York City.
The room was filled with excitement as everyone shared stories of past walks, and ideas for this year’s Walk. We know this will be a challenging year said Carol Walton, the CEO of the Parkinson Alliance, but we also know that this is a dedicated community and we will all work hard to make this 15th Walk a success.
A special award was presented to Michelle Charlesworth, Co-Anchor of WABC Weekend News and Master of Ceremonies at the Parkinson’s Unity Walk for the past 5 years. Michelle has worked to assure the Walk gets as much exposure as possible. Last year, we had 2 live interviews on WABC and then Jeff Smith, weekend morning meteorologist, did live interviews from the park on the day of the Walk.
It was a special beginning to a special event.
