What it is:

  • An important (and fun-filled) fundraising event that offers a short non-competitive 1 to 3 mile walk and other family-friendly activities.
  • Walking the full distance is not mandatory! Participants can walk as much or as little as they choose.
  • Each Optimism Walk is part of a nationwide movement to mobilize and inspire people to set up and help put an end to Parkinson's disease.  Be a part of it!

Why Walk?

  • Because every nine minutes someone is diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.
  • The more funds we raise, the more people we can help.
  • Great Incentive Prizes!
    • Raise $100 or more and get a free Optimism Walk t-shirt
    • Raise $500 or more and get a free Optimism Walk Hat
    • Raise $1,000 or more and become a Circle of Optimism Member, which entitles you to receive a medal and special recognition on our website, social media and the day of the event
  • Funds raised enable APDA to continue providing information, education and support to those touched by PD in your community and fund scientific research into the causes, prevention, treatments and ultimately the cure.
  • And, because it's going to be a GREAT day!
