What is an Optimism Walk? Each APDA Optimism Walk is an important and fun-filled fundraising event that offers a short non-competitive walk that offers family-friendly activities, music, vendor tables, and so much more!  The Oklahoma 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. (Participants can walk as much or as little as they choose.)

Sign-up yourself as an individual, create a team for your family and friends to join, or join an existing team. Together we will help families living with Parkinson's disease in Oklahoma.

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 local communities.
  • Raise $100, $500, $1,000+ and qualify for great prizes* - like the official Optimism Walk t-shirt, and more! 

Event Details:

  • Fundraising is highly encouraged. Our Fundraising Guide (above) will help make fundraising easy to do!
  • The walk route is approximately a 1/2 mile around campus and is wheelchair accessible.
