Moving Day NC Triangle - Virtual Walk

Young Onsetters

Welcome to our Moving Day® Team Page! We represent the friends and families of People with Young Onset (and Young Spirited) Parkinson's Disease. We have been a team since the inception of the Triangle Moving day in 2013 and have raised at least $75,000 for the Parkinson's Foundation and been among the top 5 teams every year. So let's keep the streak going! 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. Young Onset Parkinson's Disease (YOPD) is defined as PD onset < 50 y.o. and ~ 10% of all cases of PD (1,000,000 nationwide). There are special needs for those diagnosed with YOPD as they generally remain as active as possible, working, raising children, and may have to support their children through college. Join our team for the local Parkinson's Foundation 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 continue improving the quality of care for those living with Parkinson's disease.
