What to Expect at Moving Day

Put on your Moving Day gear and comfortable shoes – it’s time to move! Get ready to exercise, explore Parkinson’s resources, join in the uplifting We Move Ceremony and enjoy the Moving Day Walk. You don’t want to miss out on the inspiring day we have planned for you!

Moving Day 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.

Program & Activities

This will be our 10-year anniversary event! We are excited to announce that our 2024 guest of honor will be Cade Otton, Tampa Bay Bucs tight end! Cade has a personal family connection to Parkinson’s disease and we are honored he has partnered with us to raise funds to provide life-changing resources and advance research toward a cure.

To begin the walk, you’ll experience a powerful We Move Ceremony at 9:45 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.

There will be fun for the whole family! We will celebrate with music, games from the Tampa Bay Bucs street team, an appearance from DJ Kitty: Tampa Bay Rays mascot, and the following We Move exercise demonstrations:

– Zumba by the Tampa JCCS & Federation

– Rock Steady Boxing by Rock Steady Boxing Fishhawk

– Cardio Drumming by pdLIFE

– A performance by the Tremble Clefs choir of the Tampa JCCs & Federation Parkinson’s Program

– Color Guard Presentation by the Jefferson High JROTC
