Greetings team! It is hard to believe our 5th Moving Day® NC Triangle is almost upon us. Join us in making this day the best of them all! Our team represents the friends and families of RTP area people with Young Onset (and Young Spirited) Parkinson’s Disease. Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease (YOPD) is defined as PD onset prior to 50 years of age and it represents ~ 10% of all cases of PD (1,000,000 nationwide). There are special needs for those diagnosed with YOPD as they remain active, working, raising children, and may have to support their children through college. We have been a team since the inception of the Moving Day® NC Triangle in 2013 (formed by the late Pierre Gervais and me) and have raised more than $70,000 for the Parkinson’s Foundation. We have surpassed our target every year and have been among the top 3 fundraisers every year.
Please give as your heart desires, and reach out by email or texting to your friends and family to help our cause. You have all been so generous in the past.

Did you know that someone is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease every 9 minutes in the United States? No one should have to face Parkinson’s alone. That is why the National Parkinson Foundation provides a community of support to give people the resources and help they need to live well with Parkinson’s.
Support our mission to help every person diagnosed with Parkinson’s live their best possible life now.
Your gift will help us fund better research, better treatment and better lives.
