National Parkinson Foundation: Keep on Moving!

Why We Walk header.fw.png


Why move for Moving Day®?


Support 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 video. We are in this fight together--#whywefight 


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 their area.

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 kits.

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.
