The Parkinson’s Foundation’s (PF) Moving Day® is a unique fundraising and awareness-raising event held in local communities across the United States. With a festival atmosphere and multiple engagement opportunities, Moving Day is not your traditional walk event. In addition to a family-friendly walk, participants are encouraged to explore sponsor tents and actively participate in demonstrations of health and well being — like dance, yoga, boxing and pilates. These activities are proven to help manage the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Moving Day is designed to create greater awareness — not just of the importance of movement, but of Parkinson’s itself, a movement disorder.

Jessica Shurer, the UNC Movement Disorders Center's Center Coordinator, was the initial coordinator of the Triangle event and UNC Neurology has been involved ever since. A large portion of the funds raised come back to NC in the form of community grants for Parkinson’s programming. Learn more and form a team by visiting www.MovingDayNCTriangle.org.
