Why We Walk

Why move for Moving Day?

Get out and move with your community. Every dollar raised supports the Parkinson’s Foundation mission to make life better for people affected by Parkinson’s disease (PD). At Moving Day walks across the country, we’re fighting Parkinson’s and celebrating movement — proven to help manage Parkinson’s symptoms — and we’re doing it together. #Move4PD

Funds raised through Moving Day support the Parkinson’s Foundation mission by:

  • Delivering quality care to more than 145,000 people living with Parkinson’s
  • Funding cutting-edge research to improve treatments and advance toward a cure
  • Providing free resources for people living with Parkinson’s and their families

Since 2011, Moving Day events across the country have gathered more than 130,000 participants and raised nearly $22 million to improve care and advance research toward a cure.
