Pro Tip #1 from Lisa: Order an Empanada

Can raising awareness be as easy as eating an empanada? Lisa Paillex Griffin says yes. This PDF Champion teamed up with her friends at Empanada Guy Restaurant in Freehold, NJ, to host Empanadas for Parkinson's this April.  All month, 15 percent of purchases made at the restaurant will benefit PDF. Not only that, because of The Light of Day Foundation $100,000 Matching Gift Challenge, every penny raised will be doubled. Be sure to donate by Wednesday, April 30 to get your gift doubled!

Pro Tip #2 from Jane: Wear Awareness Proudly

How can you show your support of the fight against Parkinson’s? Get decked in awareness gear, like PDF Research Advocate Jane Gaydos of Cleveland, OH.  She is pictured here (second from right) wearing the official 2014 Parkinson’s Awareness T-Shirt with members of her Pedaling for Parkinson’s group. Purchase your t-shirt, designed by Ruth Lotzer, from our online store and complete the look with a wristband or a PDF cap.
