Parkinson's Foundation announce scholarships, encourages fundraisers
During the month of April, the Parkinson’s Foundation of Palm Beach and the Treasure Coast announces the Parkinson’s Scholarship Program with the School District of Palm Beach County. During the first year, the National Parkinson’s Foundation has set up a program to fund two scholarships to Florida Atlantic University for Medical Academy high school seniors. Scholarship information will be provided to all medical academies from the Department of Choice and Career Options. The scholarship program will be judged Nov. 16, 2014, at the Moving Day Boca Raton Event at FAU. The program includes any Parkinson’s related research and/or media distribution event.
The National Parkinson’s Foundation is hoping to have fundraisers in participating schools during the month of April, Parkinson’s Awareness Month. Some examples of fundraising activities are: “dollar for collar”, “pretzels for Parkinson’s”, selling popcorn. If you have a personal connection with Parkinson’s or will like to help in the program, please contact Stuart Perlin, executive director of NPF – Palm Beach/Treasure Coast Chapter at 561-306-2090 or StuartPerlin@gmail.com.
