New Symbol For Parkinson’s Awareness

GLOBAL ALLIANCE TO END PARKINSON’S DISEASE LAUNCHES NEW SYMBOL FOR PARKINSON’S AWARENESS

Vancouver, BC Canada – April 1, 2022 – More than 80 Parkinson’s Disease organizations and thousands of advocates from 83 countries announce the launch of ‘The Spark,’ a new international symbol for Parkinson’s awareness, to increase conversation and public awareness around the world’s fastest growing neurological disease. The symbol will be promoted and shared around the world during World Parkinson’s Day on Monday, April 11, 2022.

The Spark, inspired by dopamine – a critical electro-chemical neurotransmitter that people with the disease are striving to retain – will be used to energize a global movement and inspire urgency, unity and hope to end Parkinson’s Disease. “The who’s who of Parkinson’s combine forces under a new symbol to keep the disease top of mind for everyone. The Spark is intended to electrify a powerful movement changing how all of us think about this disease. We want to break the stigma around Parkinson’s. We’re leading a louder call to fund medical breakthroughs. And together – we’re striving to put Parkinson’s in the past,” said Larry Gifford, founder of Global Alliance to End Parkinson’s Disease (also known as the PD Avengers).

SHARE YOUR SPARK ON WORLD PARKINSON’S DAY

This World Parkinson’s Day, we are calling on those impacted by the disease to stand up, speak out and unite to end Parkinson’s. People can join our movement by sharing The Spark with friends, family and on social media channels on Monday, April 11, 2022.

Every organization, individual or group who want is encouraged to share The Spark in their campaign, event or communications around World Parkinson’s Day and beyond. The Spark toolkit can be downloaded here worldparkinsonsday.com. People can either personalize The Spark or share one of dozens of pre-made graphics.
