April is Parkinson's Awareness Month. Please share if you are doing anything to raise awareness or money for Parkinson's in April.

The tulip is the symbol of hope for people with Parkinson's. (Research James Parkinson and tulips.) i will be doing 3 sales of fresh-cut tulips.

I also set up a display at the local library

There's still time to do something to raise awareness or money. ...today is April 1!

Hello Lizzy,
I am very busy in March and April raising money and awareness for Parkinson's Disease. We just held a fundraiser in my hometown to benefit the Parkinson's Unity Walk which is held in NYC's Central Park on April 22nd. With my team I have been participating in the walk and raising money since 2009 when I was first diagnosed. It keeps us all busy but it is for a great cause which is to fund research to find a cure. We have raised since 09 $75,000 and hoping this year brings us close to $100,00. Anyone in the NYC vicinity who would be interested in the walk let me know.

deen521,
Thanks for sharing. I've never been to the Unity Walk, but have heard great things. Thanks to you and your team for raising so much money for that wonderful cause. That's fabulous!
