youth volunteers were just great. They were so encouraging, I can't say enough
about how important they were.”
best part was meeting people from other teams and wallowing in the joy of all
of us walking together. I also loved the
music at the beginning of the walk and the cheerleaders along the way."

thought NPF did a wonderful job, especially for a first time walk. The activities for the children were
great. My son has been involved in many
walks/runs and said that the fruit, etc. that was made available was the best
he's ever seen. My husband has Parkinson's, and I always wanted to participate
in an event. Thanks for doing this."
(Joanne, Chicago participant)
the balloons that were released to represent those who passed away in the last
year, was so touching. The sponsor signs were nice but the signs and t-shirts
of family and friends walking in memory or in honor of Parkinson's patients
were the most inspiring to see."

a walker, it was wonderful to see the PD community engaged in an upbeat
community activity. As a professional,
the exhibit space provided an opportunity to share valuable knowledge with patients
and their families. The Moving Day event allowed us to reach a large number of
individuals and empower them with knowledge."

experience and we loved the enthusiasm and positive spirit of the walkers!"

"Seeing my Grandma
participate in activities, such as Tai Chi, was really memorable, it was also
great that there was an easy walk route and she could get around in her wheel
(Nicole, Buffalo participant)
husband has Parkinson's disease and he was with us for Moving Day even though
he could not do the walk. We had 20 people walking and we all had a great time.
We even won for the best t-shirts and were on Channel 4 news! My grandchildren
thought it was a big deal, they loved it."
