Fundraise to help people with Parkinson's live well today!

Fundraising is Fun.

Update your fundraising page:

  • Log in to your participant center (button in the corner of this page!)
  • Update your page with a photo and your story (don't forget to click save!)
  • Story tips: What are you doing and why do you support the cause?

Send emails:

  • There are templates in your participation center under the "Email" tab that can help you compose your email or letter.  You can use that tool to email your nextwork or copy the template and use your personal email.
  • A good outline for your email answers these questions: What are you doing and when is it?  What organization are you supporting and why?  Where can someone make a donation to support you? 
  • Don't forget to include the link to your fundraising page.
