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 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. 

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 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!

NEW: Now you can create a Facebook Fundraiser that connects directly to your Optimism Walk fundraising page for fast and easy fundraising!  After you register, you just set it up quickly through your Walk fundraising portal. IMPORTANT -- you must set this up from within your fundraising portal in order for it to work! Please see the instructions.

Other Details:

Fundraising is highly encouraged.  We have tips and templates to help make fundraising easy to do!

Pre-walk activities include sign-making, sponsor booths, team photos, and face-painting.

Post-walk celebration with awards for top fundraiser, largest team and most team spirit.

Download an Optimism Walk Brochure and/or Flyer to share with friends and coworkers!  (COMING SOON)
