Moving Day, A Walk for Parkinson's

Join together as a community to honor loved ones with Parkinson’s disease, raise awareness, support the life-changing work of the Parkinson’s Foundation, and celebrate movement – proven to help manage Parkinson’s symptoms.

The Parkinson’s Foundation will host Moving Day Salt Lake City on Saturday, May 4, 2024 at Liberty Park. More than 200 people are expected to take part in movement demonstrations and a 1.4 mile walk to beat Parkinson’s. The family-friendly, in-person event is one of more than 45 Moving Days taking place across the country in 2024. This will be the first year the Parkinson’s Foundation is hosting Moving Day in Utah and the event has a goal of raising $60,000 to support the Rocky Mountain Chapter. Funds raised through Moving Day support cutting-edge research, improved quality of care and education programs to improve the lives of people with Parkinson’s disease and their families. Moving Day is more than just a walk. It is a celebration of movement, which is critical in battling the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (PD). The event in Salt Lake City will be fun and inspiring, including demonstrations of boxing, dance, and other movement disciplines to warm up the crowd for the walk. It is estimated that one million people in the U.S. are living with Parkinson’s, with approximately 90,000 people newly diagnosed each year. Moving Day events across the country have raised more than $40 million supporting the Parkinson’s Foundation’s mission to make life better for people with Parkinson’s disease.
