General > Tell Us Your Story

Every person who walks in Central Park for the Parkinson’s Unity Walk has a unique story to tell.  We want to hear your story.  

How does Parkinson’s disease impact your life?  What makes you walk?  Why do you raise money?  Are you walking for a family member or a friend, because you have Parkinson’s disease, or in memory of a loved one?  Are you walking with a team of four or is your team made up of over one hundred members?  Was there a certain moment in time when you decided to register with the Walk?  Or did you wait awhile until you signed up?

Everyone has a story that tells a different reason why it is so important that we walk each year.  Sharing your story allows our Staff to know more about the walkers who are the heart of the Walk.  Each step and each walker counts.  It is our priority to know and provide fundraising support to as many registered walkers and teams as possible.  In turn, when you share your story, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Possibly be featured on our online and offline publications including our website, e-mail campaigns, social media, and as we do our outreach to the media.
  • This might be your chance to be chosen by our Staff, to be featured as a Parkinson’s CHAMPFill out this form for consideration.
  • By sharing your story, you will also be helping to motivate others to take action.
