Thank you to everyone who was able to make it to Moving Day D.C. 2012! We had a great event, the weather held out for us and we
raised over $340,000 to help people with Parkinson's! Nearly 2,000 participants joined us on November 4th at Nationals Park including Parkinson’s patients, families, friends, healthcare professionals, corporate leaders and teams. We joined together to walk and move to
raise awareness and critical funds in support of the work done at PFNCA and NPF. We hope you will all join us at this year’s Moving Day
in fall 2013!

Moving Day® is the collaborative effort of the National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) and the Parkinson Foundation of National Capital Area (PFNCA). The event is a day of joining together and raising awareness
of Parkinson’s disease. It is a day to move, a day that will move you and a day to move others.
In addition to a fundraising walk, this will be a celebration of movement, with a special
Movement Pavilion featuring yoga, stretching, dance and much more. The pavilion will be open when registration begins through the end of the walk. For those registrants that would prefer
not to walk, there will be plenty of wonderful activities and information to enjoy.
Approximately 30,000 people in Washington National Capital Area live with Parkinson’s disease. As the
