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.

At the National Parkinson Foundation, we believe that every person with Parkinson’s should get the best treatment and care. Everything we do helps people live their best lives today until there is a tomorrow without Parkinson’s. The great impact of Moving Day® is thanks to supporters like you.

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.
