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!
  • Raise $550 or more and earn an Optimism Walk hat!
  • Raise $1,000+ and become a Circle of Optimism Member! Receive a special medal during Opening Ceremony and additional recognition on our website and social media!
  • Funds raised enable APDA to continue providing local 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!
  • 1.5-mile wheelchair accessible route (note: there are a few hills, but also some short-cuts to avoid them)
  • There will be exhibits, refreshments, music, entertainment, giveaways and much more!
  • Rain or shine! 
  • Download an Optimism Walk Brochure and/or Flyer to share with friends and coworkers!
