Greetings Everyone! It is hard to believe our 5th moving day is almost upon us. Join us in making this day the best of them all! Please give as your heart desires, and reach out by email to your friends and family to help our cause. You have all been so generous.
Welcome to our Moving Day® Team Page! We represent the friends and famiiies of People with Young (and Young Spirited) Onset Parkinson's Disease. We have been a team since the inception of the Triangle Moving day in 2013 and have raised at least $75,000 for the Parkinson's Foundation and been among the top 5 teams every year. So let's keep the streak going!
In the United States, 50,000-60,000 new cases of Parkinson's disease (PD) are diagnosed each year, adding to the one million people who currently have PD. Young Onset Parkinson's Disease (YOPD) is defined as PD onset < 50 y.o. and ~10% of all cases of PD (1,000,000 nationwide). There are special needs for those diagnosed with YOPD as they generally remain as active as possible, working, raising children, and may have to support their children through college.
Join our team for the local National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) Moving Day® walk, the first nationwide grassroots campaign that spotlights the disease on a national level and gives the chance to raise awareness and funds in our own community. Your support will help NPF continue improving the quality of care for those living with Parkinson's disease.
