This year we are hitting the road to once again Walk the Fight/Run the Distance for Parkinson’s!  

Parkinson’s disease impacts every aspect of someone’s life and is about much more than medicine. To achieve the best quality of life, people need to be engaged in exercise, be engaged in mindful activities, engaged with each other and their community…and having fun!

Thank you to all those who participated and supported the 11th Annual Walk the Fight & Run the Distance, we reached our goal of $100,000 to support the Community Outreach and Wellness Programs offered through the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center as well as raise awareness about Parkinson’s disease for those living in Arizona.

Please help us make this 12th anniversary a grand success by participating in any way possible. Whether you form a team, walk/run as an individual or support a family member or the Parkinson’s community with a donation in their honor. Your support for this event is crucial and will have a lasting impact on the Parkinson’s community in Arizona. Together let’s raise the bar to $125,000!
