What it is:
An important (and fun-filled!) fundraising event that offers a short non-competitive walk, LIVE MUSIC, an interactive Rock Steady Boxing demo 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 step 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!
Raise $500 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 communities through our APDA Information & Referral Centers at St. Catherine of Siena Wellness Center (Commack) and NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine (Old Westbury) as well through other critical programs and services throughout Long Island. See "What APDA Supports in NY" in the box on the upper right of this page.
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!
Wheelchair accessible route (less than one mile, no hills, with benches and bathrooms along the way)
There will be exhibits, refreshments, LIVE MUSIC, an interactive Rock Steady Boxing demo, giveaways, and much more!
