Moving Day Sioux Falls, SD
Date: Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013
Schedule Details - TBA
Moving Day® is a collaborative effort of the National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) and the National Parkinson Foundation South Dakota Chapter. This event is a day of joining together and raising awareness of Parkinson’s disease. In addition to a fundraising walk, this is a celebration of movement, with a special Movement Pavilion featuring various types of exercise including yoga, dance, and much more. The pavilion will be open when registration begins, through the end of the walk. For those who prefer not to walk, there will plenty of wonderful activities, entertainment and information to enjoy.
It is a day to move, a day that will move you and a day to move others.
We were so pleased that our inaugural MOVING DAY Walk for Parkinson’s raised over $32,000. Around 200 participants, teams, and volunteers came together and filled the Western Mall in Sioux Falls this past October to help people with Parkinson's. People with Parkinson’s disease, family, friends, co-workers, healthcare providers, and corporate leaders all joined together to exercise while raising funds and awareness in support of the Foundation’s mission! It was extremely encouraging to view firsthand the dedication and commitment level of our community. The committee is already hard at work to make this year's event even better!
The event will take place on Saturday, October 5th, 2013 and will once again be held at the Western Mall in Sioux Falls. If you are interested in volunteering, or joining our walk planning committee, please contact Janey Case, NPF/SD Executive Director, at 605-271-6113 or at email@example.com
In 1996, the Parkinson’s Association of South Dakota (PASD) was incorporated as a non-profit organization in the State of South Dakota. During the summer of 1996, PASD diligently reviewed a variety of national organizations with which to affiliate. In the end, following the lead of Minnesota, PASD sought membership with the National Parkinson Foundation (NPF).
PASD continues a close relationship with NPF which supports the organization with current and encouraging information, education, and guidance to many channels through PD research. Together, PASD and NPF rely on each other to make things happen in the world of Parkinson disease.

A special thanks to our local sponsors who make this all possible.
