A picture is worth a thousand words.
Imagine then the picture of a thousand people running for Parkinson's in over a hundred cities worldwide.
One hundred thousand runners, a hundred thousand faces, a hundred thousand hearts united in participating in the more massive event to support people with Parkinson worldwide.
Because if it is true that a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, a solidarity race of one thousand people is the sum of the participation of all, starting with your participation.
From January to April, month of celebration of the races, we will update these pages with information on the participating cities, dates and how to apply.
Participate and disseminate this initiative. Because remember, a thousand words will not leave so deep an impression as one deed.
Go ahead, it's your turn. Make the first move.
The run or walk will take place in a previously prepared circuit, which will be measured to find its length.
Depending on your geographic location, the climate and logistics availability, the circuit may be outdoor or indoor.
You can also find different circuits for different participants (walking, running, roller skates, bicycles, etc.).
Each participant, should complete at least give one lap to the circuit.
For those unable to complete complete the lap by themselves, there will be volunteers placed along the circuit to help them or to take their place and complete the lap.
If someone wants to run more than one lap, GO AHEAD! RUN 4 PD!
This is not about organizing one big event in a single point of call.
Multiple events will be organized and will take place in different places in the same time frame.
As many events as possible to arrange in any suitable place for it.
A worldwide network of events will help more people to participate, making access and participation easier for them.
Getting together individual efforts in each local area we are able to achieve the maximum number of participants, the wider spread of information on Parkinson’s disease and impact on the media.
It will be a very special event and it is becoming a must on the calendar of activities organized in the international month of Parkinson’s disease awareness every year.
