Put your passion to work! Sign up to volunteer for Moving Day New Hampshire, a powerful event to raise awareness and funds to make life better for people with Parkinson's.
To make this event a success, we rely on volunteers. Our events are promoted and run by committees that help with a wide variety of tasks that can be customized to your level of involvement, making this a perfect volunteer opportunity for everyone! Some of the planning committee roles are:
Moving Day Committee Volunteers - group of committed, passionate and connected volunteers that will help us achieve our event goals.
Logistics Lead - assist with planning of the event
Sponsorship Lead - help identify and cultivate sponsors
Volunteer Lead - recruit and train day of volunteers
Team Recruitment Lead - recruit community members, businesses, schools, organizations to join the event
PR/Marketing Lead - assist with general publicity of the event including social media promotion
Also, looking for volunteers to assist with day of general needs such as set-up, check-in, refreshment distribution, clean up, and other duties as needed.
These roles are easily handled by one or more persons and many can be supported on nights and weekends, however your schedule allows.
For more information about Moving Day New Hampshire, please go to MovingDayNewHampshire.org or contact Sam at SCheung@parkinson.org.
Committee volunteers must be able to commit to attending regular monthly meetings and carrying out the duties of their position within the community. This can include driving to local businesses to solicit donations, sponsorship, or outreach. The more members we have the lighter the workload is on all of us, so please consider joining!
Our Impact Funds raised through Moving Day support the Parkinson’s Foundation mission by delivering expert care to more than 193,500 people living with Parkinson’s; investing $4.2 million in research aimed at better treatment and care; and providing free resources for people living with Parkinson’s and their families.
Moving Day is an inspiring and empowering annual fundraising walk event that unites over 20,000 people around the country living with PD, their care partners and loved ones to fight Parkinson’s. Moving Day is more than just a walk. It is a celebration of movement - proven to help manage Parkinson’s symptoms. Moving Day is among the largest Parkinson’s events in the country and provides great brand exposure to thousands of people in the Parkinson’s community.
The health and safety of participants, sponsors, volunteers, and staff are our top priority. Spring Moving Day events will move forward in person where permitted to do so, and always in accordance with local and state health guidance and regulations. Register at MovingDayNewHampshire.org to stay updated.

The Parkinson's Foundation makes life better for people with Parkinson’s disease by improving care and advancing research toward a cure. In everything we do, we build on the energy, experience and passion of our global Parkinson's community.
We are the Parkinson’s Foundation. A community. An alliance. A movement. Where people living with Parkinson’s, families, caregivers, scientists, advocates, donors and volunteers join forces to improve lives and advance toward a cure.
For over half a century, we’ve made tangible progress on all fronts, from the largest clinical study of Parkinson’s ever, which has significantly improved care, to breakthrough treatments. Today, we continue to:
Provide life-changing support to people living with Parkinson’s and their caregivers
Fund game-changing research on treatment and care
Convene the best minds from every corner of the global Parkinson’s community to find new approaches that enhance care and move us closer to a cure.
Everything we do is based on experience and informed by facts. The people we serve deserve nothing less than the highest level of support based on validated research and deep encouragement grounded in reality. Our donors and volunteers need to know that we are 100% accountable. This is why we focus on verifiable outcomes, not vague promises.
In partnership with the entire Parkinson’s community, we are making a real difference in people’s lives. And we have the research, the data - and the stories - to prove it. This is what happens when we all pull together as one global, determined and inspired movement. Better Lives. Together.
