Hundreds of visitors joined the event throughout the day and made the first Giant Public Pillow Fight in Luxembourg a huge success. Visitors were not only invited to join the pillow fights, buy a piece of Baamkuch, but also to learn more about research on Parkinson’s disease in Luxembourg.
The main objectives of this event were to raise awareness about Parkinson’s disease to the general public and to support patients in their fight against Parkinson’s disease. Many people visited the several scientific information booths, experimented what it means to have Parkinson’s disease and signed up for our Parkinson’s study (www.parkinson.lu).
Moreover, 100 m of Baamkuch have been sold by Rotary Luxembourg, helping to raise funds for the Research Project on Parkinson’s Disease (PD) entitled “Genome-wide effects and regulation of PD susceptibility factors in patient-derives dopaminergic neurons”. The revenues are donated to the National Centre of Excellence in Research on Parkinson’s Disease ( www.parkinson.lu ).
