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.

What to Expect at Moving Day

Participants are invited to put on their Moving Day gear and join us in person at the Los Angeles State Historic 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!

Moving Day Los Angeles 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.
