We’re bringing together some of the most inspiring people in our Parkinson’s community to make Moving Day – Virtual Walk an incredible experience for everyone. You will hear real people telling their stories of living with Parkinson’s, loving people with Parkinson’s and working to beat Parkinson’s. And in between those emotional and inspiring stories, we are bringing in fitness experts from our community to do mini-workout sessions right from your living room. So, grab your workout shoes, and get ready to MOVE and BE MOVED!
