What’s New This Year?
Registration is free! You just need to raise $100 or more to receive an official walk T-shirt! Registering for Moving Day® Philly is “team friendly.” You can register your family and friends all at once. Meaning, you do not have to log in and out to register your family or your team members.

All walkers, team captains and donors need to set up a new account using the Moving Day® Philly website. So even if you walked in 2013, you still need to set up a new account. The Parkinson Council team is happy to work with you on setting up your new registration page and link you to your 2013 fundraising page to access your donor and team information.

Once you have registered, you will gain access to tools to help you connect with friends and family and reach your fundraising goal. You will have your own walk website to personalize and share via social media (Facebook and Twitter) as well as track your team’s fundraising progress. Help spread the word and raise awareness about the impact of Parkinson’s disease on families in our region.

For tips about building your team and reaching your fundraising goals, please visit our Help & Tips and Team pages or call us at 610-668-4292.
