Narcolepsy Network will hold its second annual NYC walk, DREAM BIGGER! Narcolepsy Walkathon 2014. Starting with a pre-walk warm up, walkers will join forces to raise awareness of narcolepsy, a serious sleep disorder, which affects approximately one in every 2,000 people. Walkathon donations and sponsorship will support the work of Narcolepsy Network. The walk starts at Pier 51 at West Street and Horatio Street (which is a few blocks south of 14th Street). The 2.4 mile route takes walkers through Hudson River Park from Pier 51 to Pier 25 and then back to Pier 46 for light post-walk refreshments. Narcolepsy Network is a nationwide nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing early diagnosis of narcolepsy, advocating for and supporting persons with narcolepsy and their families, and promoting critical research for treatment and a cure. In 2013, more than 130 walkers participated in the event, raising more than $6,500. To register for the walk, make a donation or be a sponsor, visit the DREAM BIGGER! Narcolepsy Walkathon 2014 website at www.narcolepsynycwalk.org.
