What it is:

  • An important (and fun-filled!) fundraising event that offers a short non-competitive walk with family-friendly activities, sponsor tables, and more! For those who want to step it up, you can participate in the 5k Race or 1/2 Mile Kids Fun Run.
  • Walking the full distance is not mandatory -- participants can walk as much or as little as they choose.  Race participants compete in a 5k official paved course.  
  • 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!

Why Walk?

  • Because every nine minutes someone is diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.
  • The more funds we raise, the more people we can help right in our own local communities.
  • Raise $100, $500, $1,000+ and qualify for great prizes - like the official Optimism Walk t-shirt, and more! (To qualify for fundraising prizes, the funds raised must be part of your personal fundraising dollars.)
  • 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!
Your safety is our priority! All public health guidelines and safety measures will be in place.
The walk route is one mile and is wheelchair accessible.
Rain or shine!
