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. Event time will also be shortened, so please arrive on time!

What to Expect at Moving Day

Participants are invited to put on their Moving Day gear and join us in person at Oak Ridge 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 New Jersey 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.

Parking lot Options:

Walk Route

We will stagger the start of the Moving Day Walk to avoid having a large crowd walking together. Please physically distance as much as possible along the walk route. Only runners will be encouraged to take the long route, so that all of our walkers can make it back in a timely manner and enjoy the rest of our planned activities.

Restrooms

Restrooms will be available at the entrance of the park/event, in the park facilities.

Refreshments

Bottled water and pre-packaged snacks will be available onsite and provided by volunteers.

Pets

Well-trained dogs may join you at the event, however please understand that by bringing your dog, you are acknowledging and agreeing to our pet waiver.
