We Are Bringing Moving Day to You!

We are excited to bring you a next-level LIVE, virtual Moving Day walk experience using the Charge Running app. Get the feeling of an in-person Moving Day walk with a live leaderboard, chat rooms and a live walk coach who’ll be talking to you, cheering you on and helping motivate you throughout the walk. You can walk, hike or run your favorite route with people around the country that share your passion – to beat Parkinson’s. Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind LIVE, virtual walk experience! You have the option to join us for one or all three of the Moving Day @ Home virtual walk event dates listed below.
