Why move for Moving Day®?
our mission to help every person diagnosed with Parkinson’s live their best
possible life now. Your gift will help us fund better research, better
treatment and better lives. Learn more
about how we fight for people with Parkinson’s and their families in this short

Moving Day does so much more than raise funds—it provides a platform for NPF
to support local communities across the country through grants that
provide health, wellness, support and other critically important services in
Funds raised through Moving Day also
support NPF’s national mission by:
• Delivering quality care to more than 50,000 Parkinson’s
patients worldwide through our NPF Center of Excellence network;
• funding cutting-edge research like the Parkinson’s Outcomes Project, aimed at better treatment and care;
• providing free resources
for patients and their families, such as a toll-free Helpline (1-800-4PD-INFO) and the life-saving Aware in Care hospital

Did you know that someone is diagnosed with
Parkinson’s disease every 9 minutes in the United States? No one should have to face Parkinson’s alone.
That is why the National Parkinson Foundation provides a community of support
to give people the resources and help they need to live well with Parkinson’s.
