To be a part of the Spring Moving Day experience, all you need is your phone, a pair of headphones, and your favorite athletic shoes. Participating virtually in Moving Day allows you to support our community from your favorite walking path, most scenic hiking spot, or even your living room! Celebrate movement with thousands across the country as we support our common goal – to beat Parkinson’s Disease.
For our virtual participants, we have new additions this season that will help make your Moving Day experience a great one. This includes the Moving Day @ Home kickoff event happening on April 15th at 1pm ET (Noon CT). Join us virtually for our We Move Ceremony, where we will connect with participants throughout the U.S. and celebrate the Moving Day season with stories from individuals in our community and information on PD. After the ceremony, access the spring Moving Day @ Home Spotify playlist, where you will find our audio broadcast and plenty of motivation music. Remember, you can access this playlist as often as you want and share with friends and family to help us spread awareness.
Looking to personalize your Moving Day experience? Whether you’re an individual participant, or participating in a team, there are several ways to celebrate Moving Day @ Home and make this season a memorable experience. To help you with inspiration for your own experience, here are some ideas that other Moving Day @ Home participants are doing this year.
Moving Day @ Home at Your Local Park
Reserve a pavilion, or find a grassy spot with plenty of space and picnic tables, and invite your family and friends to a Moving Day picnic or Bar-B-Que! Movement ideas can include a group yoga session, active yard games, or frisbee golf.
Moving Day @ Home on the Trail
Grab a group of friends, or make it a solo adventure, and hit your favorite hiking trail or nature path. Movement ideas can include walking/hiking or biking! Celebrate your movement with brunch (or lunch) at a special spot.
Moving Day @ Home – in Your Actual Home
Invite your family and friends over to watch the We Move Ceremony (available starting April 15th) and get your movement in together. Movement ideas can include a neighborhood walk or even a dance party in the living room!
No matter how you choose to move, make sure you’re including plenty of fun. Share your movement experience with the Parkinson’s Foundation by snaping a photo and using the hashtag #MovingDay@Home. We love to see how our community members are making this Moving Day season their own!
