|Record-Breaking Success! Parkinsonís Institute Crowdfunding Campaign Recognized as Indiegogoís Most Funded Health Campaign|
|Published Thursday, January 16, 2014|
At your Parkinson's Institute and Clinical Center, the New Year has presented new opportunities to raise the public profile of Parkinson's disease and funding that will enhance your care and fast track our research. Just one of many opportunities—our crowdfunding campaign (success!) continues and together we have raised over half a million dollars for your Institute.
In fact, we have achieved record-breaking success and have been recognized as Indiegogo's Most Funded Health Campaign.
We launched our very first crowdfunding campaign with Indiegogo on #GivingTuesday—Tuesday, December 3, 2013. Our campaign will run through Friday, January 31, 2014.
Our Parkinson’s Institute story is told most meaningfully and powerfully through the personal journeys of our Parkinson’s Institute partners and their families. We know that when a loved one is living with Parkinson’s disease, the entire family is living with Parkinson’s. For this very special campaign, we asked partner Bill Draper and his family to share their story with the world. Bill’s wife Phyllis is living with Parkinson’s disease. Together, we hope to inspire and motivate other families touched by Parkinson’s and unleash a very personal call to action.
Join your Parkinson’s Institute and the Draper family. Let’s get our Indiegogo on in support of world-class care and cutting-edge Parkinson’s research!
