(April 13, 2017) – Join the Unity Walk on the plaza of the Today Show on Friday, April 21st! It’s been confirmed that May May Ali, Parkinson’s advocate and PUW supporter, and Carol Walton, CEO of The Parkinson Alliance will both be interviewed on the plaza of the Today Show on Friday morning and all Unity Walkers are invited to show your support by joining us. We’ll be there wearing PUW t-shirts, carrying PUW signs and banners, and making some noise – all to raise awareness of the Unity Walk!
Now that we’ve confirmed May May and Carol’s interview, our group is guaranteed great placement on the plaza. We will meet in front of the main entrance to 30 Rockefeller Plaza between 6:00-6:15am. That’s the building that the Christmas tree is in front of in the winter. Rockefeller Plaza runs between 49th and 50th Streets and is parallel to and in between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. At approximately 6:15am, someone from the Today Show staff will escort us onto the plaza behind the spot where May and Carol’s interview will take place. If you arrive after 6:15am, find a staff person at the front of the line on West 48th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues and tell them you’re with the Parkinson’s Unity Walk. They will arrange for you to meet our group on the plaza. You can also call me on my cell when you arrive and I can call a staff person for you. My cell number is 609-651-9155. If you arrive past 6:30am when they let the general public onto the plaza, we will do our best to hold a spot for you with our group but we can’t guarantee it at that point.
We hope you can join us in person. If you’re watching from home, use our hashtag #puw2017 and let us know you’re with us in spirit.
