  • Online Logo Pinup Program!

    All of April is National Parkinson's Awareness Month! Last year we had great success in our online logo pinup program. Our goal was to have 100 logos on our wall and raise $100 and when we finished we had over 100 logos and raised over $200! We're bringing back the same program this year and can't wait to see how many logos we can fit on our walls. How it works is you can purchase a logo by clicking on the link in this page, tell us what you would like written on your logo, and we will hang it up in our office! Logos are $1 minimum or any donation amount of your choosing. We are so excited to see our community rasing awareness for PD this April!
