Moving Day is the Parkinson’s Foundation’s signature walk and fundraising event. It offers an exciting, empowering opportunity for persons with Parkinson’s disease (PD), families, friends, companies and organizations to raise significant funds to support comprehensive patient care programs and research. It’s a highly visible way to generate awareness for PD. Because studies indicate that physical activity plays an important role in managing the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, each event features a unique Movement Pavilion with activities geared toward and beneficial for people with Parkinson’s. The aim is to encourage people to stay active and move for better health. An estimated 1,500 participants are expected for the Moving Day Atlanta event. Participants include Parkinson’s disease patients, families, friends, healthcare professionals, corporate leaders and teams who join together to raise funds to support patient care and research initiatives to beat Parkinson’s.
