Moving Day Orange County

Don't Park It

Join the fight to beat Parkinson’s Disease!

We’ve united to raise awareness and funds for the Parkinson’s Foundation Moving Day, A Walk for Parkinson’s. Whether you register to join our team or donate, you’re helping us make life better for the one million people with Parkinson’s and the nearly 90,000 more that will be diagnosed this year. Your support is crucial in helping the Parkinson’s Foundation fulfill its commitment to finding a cure and enhancing the quality of life for those living with Parkinson’s today, like my mother Patricia Simon. 

After caring for my father's chronic health conditions for a bulk of their 26 year marriage, including seeing him through numerous surgeries, a liver transplant, and liver cancer, my mom became a widow at 50, while in remission from her own breast cancer, and still raising my sister. At the same time, Mom was mostly by herself taking care of her mom (my grandma) who had Alzheimer’s and had to be moved from Maryland to upstate New York to a nursing home close to our house. We suspect it was all this stress to lead my mom to develop Parkinson’s. She has been through so much and is now recovering from a hip replacement in February. I am honored to walk on her behalf so we can find a cure or stop the progression of Parkinson’s. Thank you for supporting our team and the vital work of the Parkinson’s Foundation!
