Welcome to our Moving Day® Team Page! I chose the term "juggernaut" for the team name because it means "an overpowering force." I'd like us to be part of the overpowering force that will beat Parkinson's disease (PD)!
This is going to be my last year as a team captain, so I'd love for us to have a big team and raise a lot of money. Of course, you don't have to fundraise to join the team, but it really isn't so hard to ask your friends and co-workers if they'd be willing to contribute. I think that you will find that almost everyone knows someone affected by PD.
In the United States, 50,000-60,000 new cases of Parkinson’s disease are diagnosed each year, adding to the one million people who currently have PD. If you assume that each one of those one million Americans has 3-5 loved ones, friends or co-workers who care about them, that makes 3-5 million people whose lives are impacted by Parkinson's.
Join our team for the local Parkinson’s Foundation Moving Day walk, the first nationwide grassroots campaign that spotlights the disease on a national level and gives the chance to raise awareness and funds in our own community. Your support will help us continue improving the quality of care for those living with Parkinson’s disease.
