Moving Day® News


Congrats Milwaukee on meeting and exceeding the inaugural fundraising goal of $50,000!


On Saturday, June 10th, a beautiful warm, summer day, over 300 people and 28 fundraising teams, consisting of people living with Parkinson’s disease (PD), their families, friends, healthcare professionals, corporate leaders, corporate teams from Milwaukee and surrounding areas participated in the 1st annual MOVING DAY® Milwaukee walk event at Hart Park in Wauwatosa.  

 

MOVING DAY® is the National Parkinson Foundation’s (NPF) annual fundraising event that unites families, friends and communities, both large and small, in the fight against PD. The national grassroots events demonstrate and celebrate the positive impact movement can play in slowing the progression of PD and its debilitating symptoms. 

 

There are approximately one million people in the U.S. who are living with PD. Each year, 60,000 new cases of PD are diagnosed with a growing number of those cases affecting people under 40 years of age.  Currently, there is no cure for this devastating, neurodegenerative disease, which robs people of their motor functions, including speech. The mission of NPF is to make life better for people with Parkinson’s through expert care and research.
