Optimism Walk


The APDA- Greater St. Louis Chapter will host our first ever VIRTUAL Optimism Walk on

Saturday, October 17, 2020.

The Optimism Walk is an important (and fun!) fundraising event. Each Optimism Walk is part of a nationwide movement to mobilize and inspire people to help put an end to Parkinson disease. Funds raised will help improve the quality of life for those living with Parkinson disease through support groups, exercise classes, educational events, and scientific research into the causes, prevention, treatments and ultimately the cure.
