American Parkinson Disease Association Long Island Optimism Walk

What it is:

  • The APDA Long Island Optimism Walk is part of a nationwide movement to mobilize and inspire people to step up and help put an end to Parkinson’s disease. Be a part of it!

  • An important (and fun-filled) fundraising event that offers a short (1 mile) non-competitive walk and other family-friendly activities, music, and more!
  • Walking the full distance is not mandatory! Participants can walk as much or as little as they choose.

  • FREE EVENT! ONLINE REGISTRATION STRONGLY ENCOURAGED: www.apdaparkinson.org

Why Walk?

  • Because every nine minutes someone is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
  • The more funds we raise, the more people we can help.
  • Funds raised enable APDA to continue providing local education and support to those touched by PD in your communities through our APDA Information & Referral Centers at St. Catherine of Siena Wellness Center (Commack) and NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine (Old Westbury) as well through other critical programs and services throughout Long Island.
  • And, because it’s going to be a GREAT day!
  • ONLINE REGISTRATION STRONGLY ENCOURAGED: www.apdaparkinson.org/NY
