The Parkinson’s Foundation will host its annual Moving Day Portland, a Walk for Parkinson’s, on June 1 at Payson Park. The in-person event is one of many community events taking place across the country this year. Funds raised through Moving Day will support cutting-edge research, care and education programs to improve the lives of people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and their families.

Moving Day Portland is a celebration of movement and exercise—proven to help manage PD symptoms. At Moving Day Portland, community members will participate in movement demos and exercises by Rock Steady Boxing and our signature We Move Ceremony, followed by the Moving Day walk.

Since 2011, Moving Day events across the country have raised more than $45 million supporting the Parkinson’s Foundation mission to make life better for people with PD.
