Winner of Register Early Incentive Announced

All walkers registered by February 5th were eligible to win a $250 Visa gift card intended to support their trip to NY for the Parkinson’s Unity Walk. This year’s winner is Stephanie Watson of Team Maui45.

It is Stephanie’s first year at the Walk. She will be walking with her mother and sister, in memory of her father who passed away this past December. Her father had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s for about 10 years and her family had supported various Parkinson’s organizations over the years.

She learned about the Parkinson's Unity Walk through a co-worker at HomeServe USA, her place of business. As part of their company’s recent Employee Charity Pitch, Kristin Legenza (of Team Legenza) and Stephanie won the third place pitch to support the Parkinson's Unity Walk. They are raising funds at work ($4,400 to date!) and HomeServe will match all donations.

Stephanie has opted to donate the amount of the gift card back to the Unity Walk. We are grateful for Stephanie’s generosity and that she and her family are now part of the Unity Walk family. It is a wonderful way to honor her father’s memory.
