Join us on Saturday, October 14, 2017, as we walk to Stamp Out Parkinson's at the Philadelphia Zoo!
We are SO proud that the Walk to Stamp Out Parkinson’s remains one of the biggest grassroots community fundraising events to support people with Parkinson’s and their families in the Delaware Valley. And, we are proud to host our 2017 Walk to Stamp Out Parkinson's at the Philadelphia Zoo, America's First Zoo.
In 2016, over 2,000 walkers, donors, friends, colleagues, healthcare professional came together for the Walk to Stamp Out Parkinson's in support of families impacted by the disease.
As a fundraising event, Stamp Out Parkinson’s has raised over $2.4 million dollars over the last 15 years that are reinvested back into our region for research and quality of life programs and services.
What’s New This Year? It’s all about IMPACT!
When you join us for our Walk to Stamp Out Parkinson’s, you make an impact in the lives of families living with Parkinson’s disease through your fundraising efforts.
That’s why we are asking all participants to make a financial commitment to attend the Walk on Saturday, October 14th. And, if you can’t be with us in person, you can still make an impact gift as a donor and virtual walker.
When you join us at the zoo, you and your team will have access to the zoo for the entire day and you can explore at your own pace! Click here for a schedule of events!
