What it is:

  • An important (and fun-filled) fundraising event that offers a short non-competitive walk and other family-friendly activities, prizes and more!
  • 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.
  • Raise $100 or more and get a free Optimism Walk t-shirt!
  • 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!

Other Details:

  • Fundraising is highly encouraged.  We have tips and templates to help make fundraising easy to do!
  • Cookout, children's games, raffle and musical entertainment!
  • Rain or shine! 
  • Download an Optimism Walk Brochure and/or Flyer to share with friends and coworkers!
