Optimism Walks

APDA Optimism Walks are part of a nationwide movement to mobilize and inspire people to step up and help put an end to Parkinson's disease. Each Optimism Walk is a fundraising event that offers a short walk (between 1-3 miles, distance varies by location) and an important opportunity for friends, families, and individuals coping with Parkinson's to take their passion and concern and turn it into a positive experience with a significant impact on this devastating disease. Won't you join us?
