Moving Day: A Walk for Parkinson’s on November 5, 2017 at the FAU Stadium. This event, co-chaired by Ed and Jodi Gray with Florida Movement Therapy Centers, will highlight movement and exercise as a symbol of hope and progress for Parkinson’s Disease.
Registration starts at 8 a.m. and the walk starts at 10 a.m.
Parkinson’s Foundation South Palm Beach County Chapter is hosting its annual Moving Day®, a walk to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson’s disease, at FAU Stadium in Boca Raton on Sunday, November 5, 2017 starting at 8 a.m. The funds local participants raise through Moving Day help improve the lives of people with Parkinson’s disease, their caregivers, and all others affected by this disease.
This event is co-chaired by Ed and Jodi Gray with Florida Movement Therapy Centers and locally sponsored by JEM Research Institute, Medtronic, Florida Movement Therapy Centers, Paradise Home Health Care, Duree & Company, Granny Nannies Home Health Care, Palm Beach Orthopedic Institute, St. Jude Medical – Abbott, Dr. Cenk Sengun Movement Neurologist, Dr. Henry Moore Movement Neurologist, University of Miami, Lundbeck, Right at Home, Abbvie and Sunovion.
Moving Day® is the first grassroots campaign to put a spotlight on Parkinson’s disease at the national level while also giving local communities, like Boca Raton, the chance to speak out about the effects of this disease, said Robin Miller, Executive Director of Parkinson’s Foundation South Palm Beach County Chapter.
Moving Day highlights the clinically proven benefits of an active lifestyle in order to control and improve one’s symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Every event features a “Movement Pavilion” where people can participate in yoga, Pilates, boxing, dancing, stretching, Tai Chi and so many other activities. The goal of Moving Day® is to help every person diagnosed with Parkinson’s live their best possible life now by providing a fun, inspiring and informative platform that unites families, friends and communities in a day dedicated to movement.
These nationwide walks focus on raising money to increase awareness of Parkinson’s disease, fund cutting-edge research aimed at better treatment, the advancement of clinical care through healthcare professional training, and the path towards finding a cure.
In the last six years, Moving Day® events have raised more than $14 million. These funds also provide community grants for local health, wellness, and education programs across America. The Parkinson’s Foundation hopes to address the unmet needs in the Parkinson’s community, expand successful programs to new areas, and to develop new educational and care-based programs for everyone affected by Parkinson’s.
“Moving Day is fun, it is great exercise and it’s educational,” said Miller. “But mostly, the support of the community enables us to continue to make meaningful changes in the lives of those with Parkinson’s. We believe that ‘People who move change the world.’”
About Moving Day®
Moving Day® is more than just a walk. Movement is a symbol of hope and progress because of its essential role in slowing the symptoms of Parkinson’s. For patients with Parkinson’s, exercise is not only healthy, but a vital component to maintaining balance, mobility and daily living activities. Research from the Parkinson’s Outcomes Project has proven that 2.5 hours of exercise per week has a significant movement on the quality of life for those with PD. Regular physical activity is linked to improved mobility and less cognitive decline.
About Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects nearly one million people in the US and over 10 million worldwide. Parkinson’s is the second most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer’s and is the 14th leading cause of death in the US. It is associated with a loss of motor control (e.g., shaking or tremor at rest and lack of facial expression) as well as non-motor symptoms (e.g., depression and anxiety). Although promising research is being conducted, there is currently no cure for Parkinson’s disease.
About the Parkinson’s Foundation

In everything we do, we build on the energy, experience, and passion of our global Parkinson’s community. For more information, visit www.parkinson.org or call (800) 4PD-INFO (473-4636).
