The National Tremor Foundation Platinum Pledge

Raise awareness and support people who live with neurological tremor with The Platinum Pledge!

The pledge is a way that people within the essential tremor and orthostatic tremor community can celebrate the Queen's Jubilee. You can also use this opportunity to dedicate some time and energy into your own well being.

So join us, make a pledge, set yourself a challenge and share it using the Twitter hashtag #NTFPledge!

Why take a pledge?

The Platinum Pledge is aimed primarily around raising awareness of essential tremor and orthostatic tremor and supporting people who live with this neurological condition.

Why raise awareness of neurological tremor?

  1. Essential tremor is considered as one of the most common neurological movement disorders.
  2. Essential tremor affects over one million people in the UK, 10-million in the USA and millions more worldwide. 
  3. Essential tremor is a progressive neurological disorder. At least 5% of all cases of essential tremor are in childhood. 
  4. It is estimated that 60% of all cases are inherited.
  5.  Essential tremor is often confused with Parkinson’s. Essential tremor is estimated to be 8–10 times more common than Parkinson’s.

Five reasons to fundraise for the NTF

  1. We are the only charity supporting all forms of neurological tremor
  2. The NTF runs over 30 support group events a year
  3. We have lead the campaign for Focused Ultrasound on the NHS
  4. We provide support for over 100,000 people a year!
  5. We have a network of people with neurological tremor in over 50 countries worldwide!

Need an idea?

Here are some examples of pledge ideas and pledges that people are already engaged within are;-

Get moving and get outdoors!

Some are running, some walking, some just visiting. Perhaps set a target of 70 laps!

We also have people pledging to swim 70 laps of their swimming pool!

Or are arts and crafts your thing?

You could challenge yourself to get the crafting materials out and create some home crafts, even display them or engage with local craft groups.

Shake, bake and make a cake!

Why not join others and pledge to engage in home baking? These buns / cakes could be shared with family and friends, perhaps at a planned afternoon tea event or shared with colleagues at work of social groups where you are able to raise awareness of ET.

Go green!

Organise a litter pick and also people engaging in mindfulness activities.
