Welcome to our Moving Day® Team Page! We are the Young (in age and spirit) Onsetters Group based in the Triangle area and central NC (but not exclusively!).
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. The average age of PD diagnosis is around 62. When an individual is diagnosed with PD before the age of 50, the disorder is called Young-Onset Parkinson’s disease. It accounts for about 10% of all people with 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.
