We present Jump for Dystonia with a new twist. This is a relaunch of the successful dystonia awareness campaign that took place in 2015 involving thousands of people worldwide. The first edition of Jump for Dystonia focused on making dystonia better known and more heard of. People from all continents submitted all together more than 10 000 Jump photos.
This September we will ask our followers to celebrate the freedom of movement with a jump to raise awareness of dystonia.
There are many types of dystonias and that’s why we want to suggest several styles of jumpers. Also, not everyone has the posibility of jumping. These types will allow the involvement of people with limited mobility.
We will ask our followers: What kind of JUMPER are you? Penguin, star, freestyle, splash, grounded? If you do not know what kind of jumper you are we have developed a quiz where you can find out. https://jumpfordystonia.typeform.com/to/MiRZRJnW
They will be encouraged to take a photo of their Jump, share on social media during the period 1 – 30 September and use the #jumpfordystonia2020 for the chance to win one of five prizes (1 – € 500, 2 – € 400, 3 – € 300, 4 – € 200, 5 – € 100) for the best Jumps!
An independant judging panel will select the 5 winners. The panel has five members: DE photographer, EFNA Communications Officer, Industry representative, 2 dystonia patients.
The digital campaign will take place across the Dystonia Europe social media channels including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.
