Important Safety Information

Our priority is to bring our community back together while continuing to keep everyone safe. We are closely following all CDC, state and local safety guidelines. We strongly encourage you to wear a face mask despite your vaccination status. Physical distancing practices will be enforced to reduce the spread of COVID.

We will have sanitation stations throughout our event, indoor restrooms and two port-a-potties.

What to Expect at Moving Day

Participants are invited to put on their Moving Day gear and join us in person at Piedmont Park. This year’s event will put our community’s energy on full display as we return to celebrating movement together. Bring your friends and family to exercise, learn about Parkinson’s resources, take part in our signature We Move Ceremony, and, of course, enjoy the Moving Day Walk. You don’t want to miss the inspiring day we have planned for you!

Our PD GENEration team will be at Moving Day this year! You can talk one-on-one with them and schedule your virtual appointment to participate in our genetic study.

Moving Day Atlanta will take place rain or shine. Check the weather forecast to prepare accordingly. Should conditions warrant any change, we will announce it via email and on the Moving Day website.
