Nearly 200 people from 16 different countries have registered for the EPDA’s European Unity Walk so far – and there are still more than 10 weeks to go before the momentous event takes place in the thrilling city of Amsterdam.
The coming weeks will see a surge in EPDA activity surrounding the first ever European Unity Walk for Parkinson’s – with news updates appearing across all EPDA media channels, including social media (Facebook and Twitter) and its online and print platforms.
In addition, the EPDA will be reaching out to its friends and supporters all over the world to show their support and spread the word of the unique event that aims to raise awareness about Parkinson’s and its impact on people living with the disease, their families and our entire society.
Leading the charge are EPDA members Parkinson Vereniging and Parkinson Luxembourg, which have both generated more than more than 50 registered supporters each; at the same time, other supporters are making their way from Belgium, Denmark, France, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Norway, Poland, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Romania, the UK and the US.

“This is a very exciting and encouraging start to the EPDA’s inaugural European Unity Walk event,” enthused Mariella Graziano, board member of both the EPDA and Parkinson Luxembourg. “We are delighted with the interest our members and supporters are showing, and we’ll be looking to build on this interest to win new friends in the lead-up to the big day.”
The 1.6 kilometre procession takes place on Friday 28 September and will bring together people with Parkinson’s, their friends and families, healthcare professionals, representatives from the treatment industry and other patient organisations, MEPs, the media and the general public in one exciting wave – all in the name of Parkinson’s.
More news will appear on this section of the website very soon.
