Moving Day Little Rock has exceeded its goal of $75,000 and even the second goal of $100,000!

We would like to thank the over 500 Parkinson’s patients, caregivers, providers and community members in attendance on Saturday that participated in our first Moving Day Little Rock 2018. The beautiful day 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 surpass both of our goals! Many thanks to each committee member, sponsor, team, resource partner, kids zone partner, Baggo 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 can’t wait for next year’s Moving Day event! It will be even bigger and better for our PD community.
