– We are pleased to announce that the Honorable Janet Reno will once again be serving as Honorary Chair for Moving Day Miami 2014! –
Moving Day® is the National Parkinson Foundation's annual fundraising walk event. It is a day of joining together and raising awareness of Parkinson’s disease. In addition to a fundraising walk, it is a celebration of movement, with a special Movement Pavilion featuring yoga, dance and much more.
At our 2013 event more than 1,000 participants, which included people with Parkinson’s, families, friends, healthcare professionals, corporate leaders and corporate teams, joined together to raise funds in support of the Foundation’s mission.The event was a a huge success, raising over $210,000 and helping increase awareness about Parkinson's disease.
This year's event, on October 5th, 2014, will once again take place at Bayfront Park and the committee is hard at work to make this event even better!
It is 'A day to move, a day to move others, a day that moves YOU!'
