Parkinson’s Awareness Week 2014 ran from 7th-13th April and it was Parkinson’s mission to raise awareness of the condition.
The charity made a short film explaining very simply: there’s much more to Parkinson’s than you might think. The film appeals to people’s emotions to encourage them to share it online to spread the message further.
By the end of Parkinson’s Awareness Week there were more than 62,000 views of the film on YouTube and the Facebook posts sharing the film reached more than 243,500.
