Moving Day NC Triangle Presented by Merz Therapeutics

Young Onsetters

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.

To donate or visit a team members personal page please select from the ‘Team Roster’ list at the bottom of the page.

Thank you for supporting us and the vital work of the Parkinson’s Foundation.

Dave was diagnosed with young onset Parkinson’s at the age of 46 in 2005. He has successfully coped with the disease for 18 years and believes that a positive attitude, regular and strenuous exercise, and plenty of sleep are ways to slow the progression of Parkinson’s. He also works to educate other people with Parkinson’s and health professionals about successfully coping with the disease. For example, in November 2016, he presented a personal talk, “Beating the Odds Against PD: A Personal Journey” to more than 250 scientists at the Annual Meeting of the American College of Toxicology in Baltimore, MD. Dave is a volunteer with the Parkinson’s Foundatio. In fact, as captain for “The Young Onsetters” team and member of the organizing committees, he has been recognized for local Moving Day walks since its inception in 2013, to date, he has raised over $100,000.
