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.
NPF has funded more than $200 million in research and support services to improve
the lives of people with Parkinson’s. We continue to be a major funder of research programs. Learn more.
Your Dollars at Work
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. Learn more.
