IRVINE, Calif., April 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MRI Interventions, Inc. (OTCQB:MRIC) today announced it is proud to serve as a platinum sponsor of the 2014 Parkinson's Unity Walk in New York City's Central Park on Saturday, April 26.

"We are excited to participate as a sponsor of this inspirational fundraising event that supports research into a cure for Parkinson's disease," stated Kimble Jenkins, MRI Interventions' President and CEO. "MRI Interventions is committed to developing technologies that expand treatment options for patients, such as our ClearPoint system, which enables 'asleep' deep brain stimulation surgery to treat symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Our goal is to improve the lives of people who have been dealt the incredible burden of a neurological disorder like Parkinson's, and we are happy to back the Unity Walk in its similar efforts."

The Parkinson's Unity Walk (PUW), a grassroots organization, began in 1994 through the dedicated efforts of patients, families, support groups, and friends who were affected by Parkinson's disease. Their main goal was to raise awareness and funds for research to find a cure for Parkinson's. Over the last nineteen years, the Unity Walk has grown from 200 participants in the first event to over to 10,000 participants in the 2013 Walk. Donations from the Unity Walk have gone to support research for major U.S. Parkinson's foundations including American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA), National Parkinson Foundation, Inc. (NPF), Parkinson's Action Network (PAN), Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF), The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research (MJFF), The Parkinson Alliance (PA) and The Parkinson's Institute and Clinical Center (PI).
