Moving Day (R) Hawaii

Robin Williams Team

We have all been devastated by Robin Williams’ death. We are further saddened to hear that he was recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s. While a diagnosis of any serious disease can be overwhelming, Parkinson’s and depression can go hand in hand. According to a recent study conducted by NPF, more than half of those with the disease suffer from cli...nical depression, which is part of the disease process itself. Depression affects quality of life more than the motor impairments of the disease.We have all been devastated by Robin Williams’ death.

In the United States, 50,000-60,000 new cases of Parkinson's disease (PD) are diagnosed each year, adding to the one million people who currently have PD.

Join our team for the local National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) Moving Day® walk, the first nationwide grassroots campaign that spotlights the disease on a national level and gives the chance to raise awareness and funds in our own community. Your support will help NPF continue improving the quality of care for those living with Parkinson's disease.  We will be walking in honor of Robin Williams.  We will be sending more information on where our team will meet up the day of the event as Moving Day gets closer.
