Volunteer for Moving Day Columbus w/ Parkinson Foundation (9/8/19)

September 8 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

In our first ever partnership with the Parkinson’s Foundation, Columbus Gives Back is thrilled to invite you Moving Day Columbus 2019: the Ohio Chapter’s 8th annual fundraising walk. 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 and a special “We Move Pavilion” featuring exercises such as Delay the Disease, Dance for PD, Rock Steady Boxing, and ActivMotion Bar; all can help manage the symptoms of PD.

Proceeds raised from the campaign help to improve the quality of care for people with Parkinson’s disease through research, education and outreach. Moving Day Columbus raises awareness of Parkinson’s both nationally and in the local community.

It is ‘A day to move, a day to move others, a day that moves YOU!’

What: We need volunteers to assist with registration, managing tents, monitoring traffic, and cheering on the route!

Where:  Wolfe Park, 105 Park Rd. Columbus, OH 43215

When: Sunday, September 8, 11am-4pm
