In its announcement of the events, the National Parkinson’s Foundation states, “[Moving Day is] more than just a fundraising walk. It’s a day to change the state of awareness about a disease that affects so many of our family and friends. It’s a movement for everyone to join together to move the needle.”

The Foundation invites everyone to register for one of the three inaugural Moving Day events, either as a team or as an individual walker.
“If you can’t attend, please consider making a donation to support another participant or team. Your efforts will help raise funds to improve the lives of the one million people living with Parkinson’s disease in the United States,” the Foundation requests.
