Every Victory Counts Challenge Virtual Event
2022 Dates to be announced
Thank you to everyone who joined summer’s greatest virtual event for a month of community, activity, and celebrating every victory, big and small.
We can’t wait to see you next year!
People with Parkinson’s (PwP) are more than their Parkinson’s disease (PD). #BeicONicwithPD is a community initiative sponsored by Supernus Pharmaceuticals to highlight the rich, active lives that PwP can lead. It’s about sharing the many pursuits of the icONic moments that make life focused ON living. Being icONic is about doing the best we can every day to live life with passion and purpose. Whether this means tips and tricks for staying on track throughout the day, or a daily activity or hobby that makes a world of difference, we want to hear about it and share it with the community and world at large. Together, let’s show that we can all put PD in its place—last on the list of things that define us. #BeicONicwithPD
Highlights from the 2021 Event
“This was a new experience for me, and it turned out to be a great blessing and life direction changer. Participating gave me new confidence and strength that was greatly needed. Thank you for your support for the PD community and helping me realize that I can still live well and be active and strong and do hard things!”
“Not only does every victory count, but every story counts. Every story needs to be told. And every story needs to be listened to.”
“The Challenge was great in so many ways. An old friend of mine whose brother was recently diagnosed recruited her entire family to participate. She and her mom walked every day for the month – and her kids participated too. It was so cool to see her family embrace the challenge. I met some new friends in the ‘Race Village,’ I got up at 4:30 am to start a zoom with some of them and I ended up staying awake with them instead of going back to bed because the connection was so magical. I completed my fourth month of Amy Says Dance which was part of my goal.”
