Since 2005, the tulip has been recognized worldwide as a symbol for Parkinson’s Disease. Many organizations involved with the Parkinson’s community use a variation on the tulip. PFNCA’s Walk Off Parkinson’s logo tells an important story. While there is no cure for Parkinson’s, those with it can take steps to live well with the disease. One of our volunteers observed that people with Parkinson’s have this swagger and defiance about them. They have a disease with no cure but they march on. PFNCA’s volunteer graphic designer captured this defiance in the Walk Off Parkinson’s logo. The imprint of a shoe through a tulip honors this defiance. As a person with Parkinson’s who attends PFNCA’s programs told us: “I may have Parkinson’s but I’m not going to let Parkinson’s have me.” PFNCA’s Walk Off Parkinson’s tulip captures this spirit and we hope it inspires those impacted by Parkinson’s to take proactive steps to live well with the disease.
