Project Summary
Elevator Pitch

Concise Summary: Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

You know how you can adopt a stretch of highway... well what if you could name and adopt a physical entity... A Bridge! Not just a roadway bridge, but a pedestrian bridge. In the back country, up an urban trail. And the money you raise would go to fund Parkinsons Research and Cure. Compelling, No??

WHAT IF - Inspiration: Write one sentence that describes a way that your project dares to ask, "WHAT IF?"

What if there was a cure?? Or a way to stop the progression??
About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

There is no way to predict the disease no way to cease its progression no cure

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

To raise funds for a collected consortium of research organizations to stop competing for the solution but collaborate for the solution. TO BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN SILOS.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Say organization A and B have been performing demographic studies in Nebraska. They both have volunteers tracking the places where there are a high incidence of PD... Wouldn't it be good if A and B knew the other was in the area conducting the same research. Would it make sense to join or branch out resources?

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.

Collaboration at all levels of an organization.

Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?

Awareness by the public that something is going on in the community. That if every organization had to start an adoption/naming contest prior to setting up research in an area, then duplicate and redundancy could be eliminated
Sustainability

Financial Sustainability Plan: What is this solution’s plan to ensure financial sustainability?

There a lot of bridges that need to be named and cared for.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

I don't think anybody is doing similar work.
