Every April the Parkinson's Foundation engages the community near and far to raise awareness about both Parkinson's Disease and the Foundation during Parkinson's Awareness Month.  

This year, with your help, our hope is to engage as many people as possible to improve the lives of people affected by Parkinson's through increased awareness. #KnowMorePD is the theme for 2021 Parkinson's Awareness Month. The goal of the campaign is to raise awareness about Parkinson's disease and the resources that help make lives better for those living with the disease. 

At the end of the month we hope people will Know More about Parkinson's disease. As part of Parkinson's Awareness Month there is an online quiz, and prizes will be given out as the centerpiece of the #KnowMorePD campaign. This 10-question quiz is comprised of multiple-choice and true/false questions to test your knowledge of Parkinson's facts and to highlight key resources and strategic priorities of the Parkinson's Foundation. 

There are prizes for taking the quiz! If you participate you may win a $25 Amazon gift card! Drawings are April 19, April 26, and May 3. In addition, there is one amazing grand prize of a Kindle Paperwhite with 32gb of storage AND loaded with all 12 of their publications now available on Kindle. They'll randomly select the final grand prize winner on May 3.  

Note: People are allowed to take the quiz more than once, but their names will only be entered into the contest one time for each drawing. Winners will be notified by email to the email address they use when taking the quiz. The winner of the Amazon Kindle must live within the United States.

Individuals living with Parkinson's disease can have a wide range of needs. Those living with advanced-stage disease may require around-the-clock palliative care and highly specialized support, while others may need only basic assistance or personal care on a part-time basis.
