All of us at The Baehr Challenge have a great appreciation for social media’s value in helping spread the word about our longer-term fight against Parkinson’s Disease. Social Media allows us to reach out to friends, family and colleagues who are either impacted directly or indirectly by Parkinson’s, or who those who are willing to help us raise the level of funding necessary to support research into this disease.
Over the coming months, we will increase our efforts through the rapidly emerging social media channels such as YouTube, Instagram, Pinterestand Google+. Since we are a very small organization made up of members of The Baehr Family, friends and volunteers, our focus is on our two important upcoming events: The Baehr Challenge on April 12, 2014, and our new involvement with the All-Star Parkinson’s Conference Arizona which will have its first event on February 15, 2014. As more people become involved with us, we’ll add some resources to enable an even wider community appeal through these additional social media channels.
As we develop additional social media programs, we will keep you informed so you can join in the conversation and share your stories and your efforts to help us eradicate Parkinson’s Disease.
