What to Expect at Moving Day

Participants are invited to put on their Moving Day gear and join us in person at Moving Day San Francisco. This year’s event will put our community’s energy on full display as we celebrate movement together.

Moving Day is more than just a walk! 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 San Francisco 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.


We ask that everyone who attends Moving Day register at before the event. When you arrive, pick up your walk bib, I Move Ribbon, and Moving Day Passport at check in.

Program & Activities

To begin the walk, you’ll experience a 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.
