What an event, what a day, what a community!

On behalf of the thousands of people living with Parkinson’s Disease and their care partners we serve in the Las Vegas area; we would like to thank everyone that participated in Moving Day Las Vegas 2019. The amazing and inspiring day coupled with the excitement and passion of everyone who attended made for a great day to fight Parkinson’s. Despite the strong winds, we stood up and fought back against Parkinson’s. Your hard work and dedication helped us raise over $36,000! Many thanks to each committee member, sponsor, team, resource partner and volunteer who gave their time, talent, and support to this important movement. Sending each of you our heartfelt appreciation for helping the Parkinson’s Foundation make life better for people living with Parkinson’s.

We are still accepting donations. Please consider making an additional donation to help us get closer to our goal!
