Moving Day Fists.fw.png

 

The National Parkinson Foundation’s Moving Day® Walk is a fun, inspiring fundraising event that unites families, friends and communities in the fight against Parkinson’s disease. Held in cities across the United States, it is the first grassroots campaign that spotlights the disease on a national level and gives you the chance to speak out in your own community.


Move any way you want...


Moving Day® is more than just a walk. It highlights “movement” and exercise as a symbol of hope and progress because of its essential role in treating Parkinson’s disease.  Each event features our unique Movement Pavilion, with stations such as yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, dance and much more. Whether you take part on a team or join as an individual, you’ll get a chance to move with thousands of supporters who share a common goal— to help beat Parkinson’s.

By taking part in Moving Day® you become part of a nationwide movement to beat Parkinson’s disease. As many as 1 million Americans have Parkinson’s disease with 50,000 new cases diagnosed each year. The money you raise through Moving Day will help improve the lives of every person with Parkinson’s by supporting NPF’s vital mission including:

• Parkinson’s Disease education and outreach through public awareness campaigns on early warning signs and treatment, as well as free patient resources for patients and their families.

• Cutting-edge research aimed at better treatment and care for people with Parkinson’s.

• Advancement of clinical care through healthcare professional training and other initiatives like our Aware in Care campaign and the Parkinson’s Disease Toolkit.

• Raising awareness about the prevalence of Parkinson’s and the need for our government, the public and communities to stand up and take action.

KC About Walk image.fw.png

 

Katie Couric is the honorary national chair of Moving Day® in memory of her father, who had Parkinson’s disease.

 

"Every individual coping with this disease should have the same quality care my Dad did, and that's why the work of the NPF is so critically important.

Its three-pronged mission of research, education, and outreach will help countless people suffering from Parkinson's today and will develop better treatments for the scores who will be diagnosed in the future.

 

I am proud to be a part of this mission and in doing so, honor my wonderful father, who was a true profile in courage as he soldiered on every day to remain an active and vibrant part of the family he so loved." - Katie Couric
