Saturday morning was one for the record books! More than 4,000 friends of the PD community joined us to raise more than $330,000 for Moving Day Twin Cities! Thank you for being a part of the celebration. We were elated to see every family member, neighbor and friend celebrate a day of movement as we build Better Lives, Together.

Did you capture moments at Moving Day? We’d love to see them! Please share them with Jennifer at jhendrickson@parkinson.org. Did you post them to social media? Please include the hashtag #Move4PD – we’ll be able to see them this way too!
