What it is:
An important (and fun-filled) fundraising event that offers a short non-competitive walk, family-friendly activities, raffle 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!
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 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!
Fundraising is highly encouraged. We have tips and templates to help make fundraising easy to do. The funds you raise will help improve the quality of life for those living with Parkinson disease through support groups, exercise classes, educational events, research and more.
We strongly encourage families and friends to form teams and join together to support the Parkinson's community and honor those living with the disease.
The event will take place rain or shine!
