How much does it cost to participate?
There is no fee to register for Moving Day, but we ask that everyone considers fundraising at least $100. Your donations and fundraising efforts help support the Parkinson’s Foundation as well as funding programs in the local Bay Area. If your pledges total $100 or more, you will receive an official Moving Day T-shirt. You may also qualify for other great prizes as you continue to fundraise.

Route
Both 1 mile and 3 mile routes will be available. We will be walking around the Evergreen Valley campus and along the various trails in the adjacent neighborhood. The official route is still being finalized, and will be updated here once it is confirmed.

What is a Movement Pavilion?
The Movement Pavilions are tents that will house exercise instructors teaching various classes of Parkinson’s specific movements. While the classes are geared to PD, anyone in attendance can join and MOVE with us any way they want.
