We are excited to announce we will be hosting the 17th Annual Walk the Fight & Run the Distance in person on January 21, 2023, in person at Tempe Beach Park. However, for those who do not feel comfortable walking with others in the community, we are offering a virtual participation option similar to the last year's walk.
Using this new hybrid model, we are offering several different race options for you. Please pick the one that fits your abilities and comfort level. If at any time you need to alter your race option please contact us and we will happily oblige. For those attendees walking in person you can choose from a timed 5K run (3.2 miles), a 4K walk (2.8 miles), or a 2 block fun walk. To participate virtually, choose the Virtual Walk to proceed with your registration. Thank you to all our generous sponsors and volunteers that help make the event a success. Please visit our sponsor section to learn more about each sponsor and how they are improving living with Parkinson's disease.
Don't forget to share your photos and videos on our Facebook page after the event!
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! The Walk/Run helps those with Parkinson's and their families connect with others living with the disease, support for carepartners and empower people with PD, carepartners and family members to achieve better quality of life.
Please help us make this year's walk 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 $150,000!
