Moving Day is a collaborative effort of the National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) and the National Parkinson Foundation Western Pennsylvania Chapter (NPFWPA). This event brings the local community together to raise awareness of Parkinson’s disease (PD).
At the Second Annual Moving Day event in 2012, over 500 participants helped to raise over $116,000 to benefit the NPFWPA. These funds helped to provide services, support, and education for the estimated 10,000 people living with PD in western Pennsylvania as well as support medical research to discover the cause and cure for PD. We want to do even better this year so we need your help to make the 2013 event the best one yet!
This event is not only a fundraising walk but also a celebration of movement. A special Movement Pavilion will be open throughout the event and feature various types of exercise including but not limited to yoga and dance. This special exhibition offers attendees the chance to participate in numerous activities, enjoy a variety of entertainment, and receive additional information about PD and NPFWPA.
We invite YOU to join people living with PD, family, friends, co-workers, healthcare providers, corporate leaders, and corporate teams on Saturday, September 28, at Highmark Stadium in Station Square for the Third Annual Moving Day celebration. There is no registration fee but participants are encouraged to fundraise to become eligible to receive giveaways and become eligible to win fabulous incentive prizes.
Registration opens at 8:30 AM and the walk kicks off at 10 AM. Event attendees will have the option to walk a gentle 1.5 or 2 mile course along the River Walk and then celebrate their efforts at the Stadium afterwards.
We hope you will join us for this year’s Moving Day event. It is a day to move, a day to move others, and a day that moves YOU. Register for this event today at www.movingdaypittsburgh.com.
