Why move for Moving Day? Get out and move with your community. Every dollar raised supports the Parkinson’s Foundation mission to make life better for people affected by Parkinson’s disease (PD). At Moving Day walks across the country, we’re fighting Parkinson’s and celebrating movement — proven to help manage Parkinson’s symptoms — and we’re doing it together. #Move4PD

Funds raised through Moving Day support the Parkinson’s Foundation mission by:

  • Delivering quality care to more than 127,000 people living with Parkinson’s
  • Funding cutting-edge research to improve treatments and advance toward a cure
  • Providing free resources for people living with Parkinson’s and their families

Since 2011, Moving Day events across the country have gathered more than 116,000 participants and raised more than $17 million to improve care and advance research toward a cure.

What happens at Moving Day? Moving Day, A Walk for Parkinson’s, is a fun and inspiring annual fundraising event hosted by the Parkinson’s Foundation across the country. Moving Day unites families, friends and communities in the fight against Parkinson’s disease. This celebration of movement features a family friendly walk course, a kids’ area, a caregivers’ relaxation tent and a special Movement Pavilion with yoga, dance, Tai Chi, Pilates and other activities — all proven to help manage Parkinson’s symptoms.
