APDA Iowa Optimism Walk

Thank you to everyone who made this such a great day!

Keep checking back for the date of the 2024 Walk

 What is an Optimism Walk?

It is a nationwide movement to mobilize and inspire people to step up and put an end to Parkinson’s disease.

An important and fun-filled event that raises much-needed funds and awareness for Parkinson’s disease.

It includes a short, non-competitive walk, with a day filled with camaraderie, family-friendly activities, music, refreshments, vendor tables and more!

Why Walk?

Because every six minutes someone is diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in the US.

The more funds we raise, the more people we can help in our local communities.

Raise $100, $500, $1,000 or more and qualify for great prizes – like the official Walk shirt and more!
