Welcome to our Moving Day® Team Page!
In the United States, 50,000-60,000 new cases of Parkinson’s disease (PD) are diagnosed each year, adding to the one million people who currently have PD.
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.
Young Onset Parkinson's Disease (YOPD) is defined as PD onset < 50 y.o. and ~ 10% (or 100,000) of all cases of PD. There are special needs for those diagnosed with YOPD as they generally remain as active as possible, working, jobs, raising children, and may have to support their children through college.
Please donate at any amount on my or our teams’ behalf. With your support we can help further the Foundation's mission to make life better for people living with Parkinson's disease through expert care and research. We know you understand the importance of an event that raises money for such an important cause.
We have been a team since the inception of the Triangle Moving day in 2012 and have raised over $100,000 for the Parkinson's Foundation and been among the top 5 teams every year. So let's keep the streak going!
Every dollar counts. You can join our team (let me know the size shirt you will need if you are planning to attend the event). We will be using our traditional Tie-died Red-White-& - Blue T-shirt.
Thank you so much for all of your generous support over the years, and I look forward to seeing you if you attend Moving Day on November 6.
Sincerely, Dave Malarkey
