What is an Optimism Walk? Our APDA Optimism Walk is an important and fun-filled fundraising event that offers a short non-competitive walk for family and friends!  The Northwest Optimism Walk in Olympia is part of a nationwide movement to mobilize and inspire people to step up and help end Parkinson's disease. 

Sign-up yourself as an individual, create a team for your family and friends to join, or join an existing team. Together we will help Northwest families living with Parkinson's disease.

  • Fundraising is highly encouraged. Our Fundraising Guide (above) will help make fundraising easy to do!
