I spent Wednesday in New York’s Central Park for a site visit. It was a glorious day to be in the city! The skies were blue, the temperature was warm and the buds are starting to show on the trees. We’ve been waiting for spring for a long time and we think it’s finally here – just in time for the 19th Parkinson’s Unity Walk in two weeks. I walked the 1.4 mile route with our contact from the Parks Department and our security agents, all in preparation for the Walk. If I closed my eyes, I envisioned the Bandshell filled with thousands of members from the Parkinson’s community, wearing their team t-shirts and carrying their signs. We look forward to being together again as a community.
As I was walking towards the subway to take me back to Penn Station and the train the NJ, what did I spot as large as day? It was a bus shelter with an ad about the Unity Walk! Media space like this throughout New York City has been donated by the Wilkins Parkinsons Foundation. We are very grateful for their continued support. Look for these ads on NYC buses, subway platforms and entrances, taxi tops and even in tv ads in NYC taxis. We are taking NY by storm! Help us spread the word. Tweet #puw2013 if you see one of these ads, or post a photo of you next to the ad on Instagram or on our Facebook page. You can also email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you on the 27th!
