The Massachusetts Chapter’s annual Walkathon is part of APDA’s national fundraising effort. Proceeds from this Walk will be used to benefit research approved by the APDA Scientific Advisory Board and the APDA Information & Referral Center network. Everyone can join in the quest as participants, cheering sections, sponsors, and contributors. It is a family day that will make a difference in the lives of those living with Parkinson’s disease.

The Walkathon will take place at Reebok International Headquarters (1895 J. W. Foster Boulevard in Canton, MA 02021) at 12 noon on Sunday, May 4th, rain or shine. On-site parking is available. Registration begins at 11:00am. Bring your family and friends. The more people – the more fun! The total walk is three miles, but individuals are welcome to walk any part of this or choose to enjoy the many other activities including exercise and movement demonstrations. Our sponsors will have information exhibits.
