The Sunflower Rev It Up is a celebratory event whose mission is to raise funds for Parkinson’s research that can benefit patients regionally, nationally and globally; to promote wellness within the Cincinnati area’s Parkinson’s disease community; and to heighten the public’s awareness of Parkinson’s disease, a progressive and devastating neurological disorder that afflicts 1.5 million Americans and cannot be halted or cured at this time. The Sunflower Rev It Up for Parkinson's was named and founded by Kathleen Krumme, a Cincinnati cyclist and bicycle shop manager whose father, the late Donald Krumme, suffered from Parkinson’s disease. 

A shared project of the University of Cincinnati Gardner Neuroscience Institute and the University of Cincinnati Foundation, the Sunflower Rev It Up includes a free educational symposium and expo for patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals; and a annual fund-raising walk/run,bike ride and party in beautiful downtown Cincinnati.
