What to Expect at Moving Day

Participants are invited to put on their Moving Day gear and join us in person at Moving Day Baton Rouge. This year’s event will put our community’s energy on full display as we celebrate movement together.

Moving Day is more than just a walk! 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!

Moving Day 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 the Moving Day website.
