The Parkinson’s Foundation (PF) is holding Moving Day, a fundraising walk for Parkinson’s disease (PD) in Charleston. The event will be held at Edisto Hall in the James Island County Park on June 2nd from 10 am to 12 pm. The money raised through Moving Day will help improve the lives of people living with PD and families affected by the disease.
The event will feature a “Movement Pavilion,” with activities such as yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, dance and much more. Studies show that movement is beneficial and proven to help manage the symptoms of PD, improving flexibility and mobility. The aim is to encourage people to stay active and move for better health.
