What to Expect at Moving Day
Participants are invited to put on their Moving Day gear and join us in person at Moving Day Twin Cities. 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!
Smile for the Camera!
We are excited to share that a professional camera and video crew will be present at this year’s event to capture all the day’s memorable moments. The footage will be used to create a dynamic 2024 National Moving Day marketing campaign that showcases the spirit of our community and the impact of our collective efforts in fighting Parkinson’s disease. We encourage all participants to bring their energy, smiles and excitement to the event. Wear your Moving Day swag, make a blue tutu, or wear a crazy hat or feathered boa. This is your chance to show the world what Twin Cities is about and how we come together to fight Parkinson’s.
Moving Day Twin Cities 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 MovingDayTwinCities.org 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.
