On Saturday, May 16, Narcolepsy Network will hold its third annual NYC walk, DREAM BIG! 2015. Starting with a prewalk warm-up, walkers will join forces to raise awareness of narcolepsy, a serious sleep disorder that affects approximately one in every 2,000 people in the United States. Walk donations and sponsorship will support the work of Narcolepsy Network.
When: Saturday, May 16, 2015 at 10:00 am
Where: The walk starts at Pier 45 in Hudson River Park, next to the intersection of Christopher Street and West Street in Greenwich Village.
What: The 2.5-mile route takes walkers through Hudson River Park from Pier 45 to Pier 25 and then back to Pier 45 for light postwalk refreshments.
Who: Narcolepsy Network is a nationwide nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing early diagnosis of narcolepsy, advocating for and supporting persons with narcolepsy and their families, and promoting critical research for treatment and a cure.
Other ways to participate: Those who are unable to attend in person, or walkers who want to do more to support narcolepsy awareness, can participate online by creating a fund-raising Dream Team.
In 2014, more than 145 people participated in the event, raising more than $18,000.
