Our priority is to bring our community together in person while keeping everyone safe. We are closely following all CDC, state and local safety guidelines.

What to Expect at Moving Day

Everyone is invited to put on their favorite Moving Day gear, wear good exercise shoes and join us in person at Moving Day Tamiami Park. This year’s event will put our community’s energy on full display as we celebrate movement together. Bring your friends and family to exercise, learn about Parkinson’s resources, participate in our signature We Move Ceremony, and enjoy the Moving Day Walk. You don’t want to miss the inspiring day we have planned for you!

Since Moving Day Miami is happening on Halloween weekend, we encourage kids big and small to bring any trick-or-treating bags with them as we will be having a candy trail throughout the site.

Moving Day Miami 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.

Limited, free parking will be available at the FIU Football Stadium parking. Parking spaces will be reserved for people with handicap placards. There will be directional signage as you approach the parking area. Any overflow parking will be directed to the closest available field parking beside the stadium.

Walk Route

The Moving Day walk is for participants of all ages and all abilities. The walk route is about .5 miles.

Restrooms

Restrooms will be available on site. Signage will be available to direct you to them. They are permanent, air conditioned bathrooms beside the site with handicap accessibility.

Refreshments

Bottled water and light snacks will be available at the Refreshment Tent.

Pets

Tamiami park is pet friendly, so we ask that if you do bring furry family members to keep them on leash while in the Moving Day Miami area for everyone’s safety.
