Moving Day® is this Sunday, October 19th. It is the National Parkinson Foundation’s annual fundraising walk event. It is a fun and inspiring fundraising event that unites families, friends and communities both large and small in the fight against Parkinson’s disease. This celebration of movement will feature a family friendly walk course, a kids area, a refreshment tent and a special Movement Pavilion featuring dance, boxing, and other exercise classes all proven to help manage the symptoms of PD.
In its 2 year history, Moving Day Chicago has raised over $600,000 in the fight against Parkinson’s disease! Proceeds raised from the campaign help to improve the quality of care for people with Parkinson’s disease through research, education and outreach. Eli’s is excited to be able to support such a great fundraising event by providing desserts to all of the participants.
Moving Day® raises awareness of Parkinson’s both nationally and in the Chicago community. It is ‘A day to move, a day to move others, a day that moves YOU!’
