World Parkinson's Day 2022
People living with Parkinson's wake up and go to sleep with Parkinson's disease every single day
- there is no escape.
11 April is the day that marks the birthday of Dr James Parkinson from London, who was the first person to systematically describe six individuals with the symptons of Parkinson's disease.
World Parkinson's Day is an opportunity for people with Parkinson's, scientists, supporters, fundraisers, families, carers and clinicians to come together and tell their story of their journey with Parkinson's, break down barriers and raise awareness.
There are lots of ways you can get involved:
We can send you a poster to put up in your place of work
(if you work in a shop, why not go one step further and create a window display)
Take part in a podcast or blog and tell others your story - real life experience and knowledge is a powerful tool and can make a massive difference to others
We can educate groups by delivering a talk to schools, youth groups or businesses (virtually or in person)
Set yourself a challenge and get friends and family to sponsor you.
This could be something that pushes you out of your comfort zone (see examples)
