Moving Day® News

Moving Day Buffalo was a great success, drawing nearly 700 participants this year raising more than $75,000 thus far. It was a very poignant day, as this year’s effort worked to raise awareness that firefighters face an increased risk of receiving a Parkinson’s diagnosis and our Moving Day fell on 9/11. To help with that awareness, the Lancaster Volunteer Fire Department brought their new $1.3 million ladder truck. For those who don’t know, the warning on the back of firetrucks has been changed from “Stay 500 feet back” to “Stay 343 feet back” in recognition of the number of firefighters who were killed at the World Trade Center on 9/11/01. At the end of the walk, we had a number of walkers gather around to form the outline of a “P,” resembling our logo. This will become an annual component of our Moving Day going forward. Donations can be made through early October by going to Thank you for all of your support, and Let’s Keep Moving!!!
