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 5k 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!
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!
Fundraising is highly encouraged. We have tips and templates to help make fundraising easy to do!
You can walk any part of the wheelchair-accessible route, from 1k to 5k.
Enjoy demonstrations of Tai Chi, Rock Steady Boxing and Pilates
Halloween - themed costume contest (with prizes!) for walk participants and dogs.
Special dog drill team performances by Zero Gravity Disc Dogs.
Rain or shine!
