MIAMI BEACH, FL – March 24, 2015 – Why are pigs taking over Miami? Because as the presenting sponsor for Moving Day® Miami, National Parkinson Foundation’s annual fundraising event, Team Terranova has launched Pennies for Parkinson’s during Parkinson Awareness month in April!
How does it work? Your favorite local businesses will host piggy banks inside their locations during the month of April. Each piggy bank is identified with the National Parkinson Foundation and Terranova logos. 100% of all collections from the piggy banks will go to support the National Parkinson Foundation. This is your chance to “bring home the bacon” to support the National Parkinson Foundation while also supporting your favorite local businesses.
Below is a partial list of participating businesses and their locations. Every time you spot a pig (and make a donation, of course!) post a photo to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter using the hashtag #PenniesForParkinson. The Pennies for Parkinson Campaign is scheduled to begin April 1st and run through April 30th.
“The Pennies for Parkinson’s campaign is a great way for us to raise awareness of Parkinson’s disease locally,” says Dreema Stokes, NPF Moving Day® Miami Manager. “The National Parkinson Foundation is grateful for the support of Terranova Corporation and their commitment to beating this disease.”
