“Chicago Got Moving in the Fight Against Parkinson’s!”

On Saturday, September 24, 2016, a beautiful warm, autumn day, 128 fundraising teams, consisting of people living with Parkinson’s disease (PD), their families, friends, healthcare professionals, corporate leaders, corporate teams and more than 100 volunteers from Chicagoland and surrounding areas participated in the 5th annual MOVING DAY® Chicago walk event in Lincoln Park.  


MOVING DAY® is the National Parkinson Foundation’s (NPF) annual fundraising event that unites families, friends and communities, both large and small, in the fight against PD. The national grassroots events demonstrate and celebrate the positive impact movement can play in slowing the progression of PD and its debilitating symptoms. 


There are approximately one million people in the U.S. who are living with PD. Each year, 60,000 new cases of PD are diagnosed with a growing number of those cases affecting people under 40 years of age.  Currently, there is no cure for this devastating, neurodegenerative disease, which robs people of their motor functions, including speech. The mission of NPF is to make life better for people with Parkinson’s through expert care and research.


$400,000 has been raised for MOVING DAY® Chicago 2016 and donations will continue to roll in during the next few weeks. This year’s phenomenal fundraising success has helped Chicago to raise close to $2 million dollars in the events 5-year history for area residents who are living with PD. 


It will be 'A day to move, a day to move others, a day that moves YOU!'
