Thank you Moving Day New Jersey!


Moving Day New Jersey has surpassed our goal of $135,000!

On behalf of the thousands of people living with Parkinson’s Disease and their care partners we serve in New Jersey, we would like to thank everyone that participated in Moving Day New Jersey 2019.  The beautiful weather, coupled with the excitement and passion of everyone who attended, made for a great day to fight Parkinson’s.  Your hard work and dedication helped us to reach our goal!

Many thanks to each Moving Day New Jersey committee member, who gave many months of their time to help put together such a successful event! Special thank you to John Kolaya, Dr. Roger Rossi, Jeff Cantor, Janice Dibling, Maria Severino, Aly Chananie, Jen Lazaro, and Soorim Yoo.

Thank you to our National Partners – Adamas, Acorda, Amneal, Acadia, Boston Scientific, Medtronic, Sunovion, Lundbeck, and Right at Home. And thank you to our Local Sponsors – HMH JFK Johnson Rehabilitation Institute, Vertical, UCB, Abbvie, Kessler and NJ Spine and Wellness, who support Moving Day New Jersey! And to our Resource Pavilion attendees – Trinity Rehab, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, and Dance for PD!

Thank you to our volunteers, who without, we could not have had such a perfectly managed event!

Thank you to our entertainers – DJ Drivvin, Old Enough to Know Better, JP Stevens Marching Band, and 3rd NJ Regiment and to our We Move demonstrators, who gave their time and talents to make Moving Day New Jersey a fun and interactive event!

Thank you to Wegmans of Woodbridge for donating our Top Fundraiser Breakfast and bottled water and to Massage Envy of Garwood for offering massages to our Caregivers in the Relaxation Area!

And of course, thank YOU. To our teams and participants, thank you for moving with us towards a better life with Parkinson’s!

Sending each of you our heartfelt appreciation for helping the Parkinson’s Foundation make life better for people living with Parkinson’s.
