Moving Day Buffalo

Each year, the National Parkinson Foundation hosts a “Moving Day” fundraising run/walk event. The event not only raises funds to battle Parkinson’s disease, it also gets the community to join together, to get healthy… to get “moving!” Moving Day Buffalo features a family friendly walk course, a kids’ area, and a special Movement Section. All of these programs are free for registered event participants. This year’s event is being held at Coca-Cola Field. Funds raised at the event will go towards:

  • Delivering quality care to more than 100,000 people living with Parkinson’s
  • Funding cutting-edge research aimed at better treatment and care
  • Providing free resources for people living with Parkinson’s and their families

Over the course of five years, 100 Moving Day events have been held throughout the nation. With over 100,000 people participating, upwards of $14 million has been raised, which is a significant sum, allowing the National Parkinson Foundation to fulfill many of its yearly goals. This event has been a key component in the ongoing fight to find a cure.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
