What to Expect at Moving Day

Participants are invited to put on their Moving Day gear and join us in person at Moving Day Rochester. 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 Rochester 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.

The New Moving Day Experience

At this year’s event, you’ll experience a new, powerful We Move Ceremony at 10:00 am that will unite us in our commitment to move against Parkinson’s. Every registered participant will get an I Move Ribbon representing your connection to Parkinson’s disease. You can use the ribbon during the ceremony and the We Move Exercises on the Moving Day Stage.
