Money raised will continue to support education, outreach, respite and more through NPFM. NPF recruited Katie Couric, whose father had Parkinson’s, to help promote Moving Day nationally. NPF also brought national sponsors. Every attendee will receive a gift for participating.

We are planning an exciting day. In 2013, nearly 3,000 people attended Moving Day, including people with Parkinson’s, families, friends, health care professionals and family teams. Again in 2014 we will walk and enjoy music, food, family photos, and Move Zones where you participate in chair exercises, PowerUp and more. If you're walking, you may choose from three paths: 2.5 miles, 1.6 miles or .25 miles. It's a day to walk a little, walk a lot, move in the Move Zones. You may even want to dance or listen to music.
Plymouth’s Hilde Center is at 3500 Plymouth Blvd., Plymouth, MN 55447. It's west of Highway 494, just north of Highway 55 next to Plymouth City Hall. General parking is available on the street near the park. The drop off and handicapped parking is on the City Hall lot. We ask that Moving Day Twin Cities participants who do not have trouble walking park along the street. We'll have people and signs to help you find the lots.
