Captain's Corner

Teams are at the core of the Parkinson’s Unity Walk. Team members comprise over 80% of registered walkers and are responsible for close to 90% of the total funds raised by our walkers. As a team captain, you play a critical role in recruiting, motivating and inspiring others to participate in the Unity Walk and raise funds for research.
