The New Moving Day Experience
At this year’s event you’ll experience a new, powerful We Move Ceremony at 9:45 am that will unite us in our commitment to move against Parkinson’s. This year, every registered participant will get a free I Move Ribbon representing your connection to the Parkinson’s community. You can use the ribbon during the ceremony and sessions at the We Move Pavilion. Also join us for a new Parkinson’s Experience, top fundraiser rewards, music, communal moments and activities.

What isn’t changing this year is our passion for helping those with Parkinson’s and helping fund critical research. We know that you will love our new Moving Day experience and we hope you will help us show the rest of the nation that Tampa knows how to move toward the end of Parkinson’s, together. Please arrive at 8:30 am to register, pick up your I Move Ribbon and take part in movement activities. Then, head over to the stage at 9:45 am for the We Move Ceremony.
