Social media is a great way to raise awareness of your fundraising activity or challenge, and it is also a powerful tool for helping to raise awareness of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) too. Social media platforms can help you access networks of like-minded people and potential supporters! 

Video is also a powerful way of engaging with supporters and again, it helps us by inspiring others to be like you! Have a look at CPT fundraiser Seb Falk's amusing video of him training for the London Marathon in his gherkin costume. Seb's efforts led many people to sign up for the marathon and provided a lot of amusement along the way...
