How we're doing the Walk in 2021...
On October 16th, we will celebrate 20 years of A Walk to Stamp Out Parkinson's and are excited to see the faces of our local commUNITY!
Rest assured that we adhere to the Philadelphia Zoo's safety protocols, including the requirement of masks in indoor animal exhibits. This is for the safety of the animals who can catch the virus. Face masks are not currently required outdoors.
While this year's walk will include many of the great features of the past, we promise some anniversary surprises as well.
Keep an eye out for email updates for details!
Since it's beginning as a humble neighborhood walk, our annual A Walk Stamp Out Parkinson's has raised over $3.9 million and touched thousands of lives in our region. Those funds have been reinvested back in our region for research and quality of life programs and services to support thousands of families living with Parkinson's.
Our fundraising goal for 2021 is $275,000. As we return to some level of normalcy, meeting this goal is critical. It allows us to increase our investment in programs and services on which our community and region have come to depend. Click here to check out where funds are invested. This year we want to invest even more! Join us!
