Family Strongis Our 2022 Theme

Our inspiration this year is Family Strong. Battling Parkinsons Disease takes a village, which includes our relatives, friends, and our community of supporters and health care providers.
We are a small but mighty organization and this year we have invested $243,525 in grant funding to local organizations that support our Parkinsons Family. Your contribution and participation in this years walk help grow and strengthen the programs and services like the Cooper Neurological Institute, Music Matters, the Penn Parkinsons Disease and Movement Disorders Center, and more.
Collectively, these wonderful organizations support people with Parkinsons physically, mentally, and emotionally. Truly touching the lives of people with Parkinsons in our towns daily. So, join us, and lets make our family strong together!
Family, Friends, Neighbors, Colleagues = Community
Since its beginning as a humble neighborhood walk, our annual A Walk Stamp Out Parkinson’s has raised over $4.2 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.
