Moving Day® News
Congratulations Louisville for a fabulous walk raising over
$60,000 while honoring the late great Muhammad Ali!
What a beautiful day to honor one of the cities icons that
was such an inspiration to those living with Parkinson’s disease (PD). We
were honored to have Muhammad’s wife, Lonnie Ali and his daughter, Rasheda
Walsh Ali with us for this day of “moving” together for PD. Their
speeches were so impactful to all those there at the inaugural Moving Day
Louisville walk. Being a part of the “I am Ali” festival was a great
pairing for our walk too! We were able to leave our mark with our words
on their butterflies that will be proudly displayed at the Muhammad Ali Center
for years to come. An impactful day for the 28 teams and almost 500
walkers was had by all.
Moving Day® is the National Parkinson Foundation’s
annual fundraising walk event. It is a fun and inspiring fundraising event that unites families, friends and communities both large and small in the fight against Parkinson’s disease. This celebration of movement will feature a family friendly walk course, a
kids area, a caregivers relaxation tent and a special Movement Pavilion featuring yoga, dance, Tai Chi, Pilates, etc. all proven to help manage the symptoms of PD.
It will be 'A day to move, a day to move others, a day that moves YOU!'
