Moving Day 2015!
Moving Day 2015 is coming faster than it seems. The date for this year’s walk is Sunday September 13th, and we will be celebrating at Coca Cola Field once again. We are looking to exceed the great success we achieved last year, so we’ll need an incredible effort to bring back last year’s teams and to encourage new ones to join the effort! Let’s build in the more than $70,000 raised last year!

Thank you to our sponsors and the entire community for supporting this event! We hope to see you this year!
Ice Skating Party at Canalside - This is our first effort at hosting an ice skating party for the PD Community. Ice Bikes of Buffalo have been kind enough to reserve their contraptions for us, which will allow PD patients capable of mounting and peddling a bicycle to take to the ice. This is a family event, so please bring the kids. There is no cost, but skate rentals are $3. Space is limited so call (716 449-3795) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) to reserve your spots.
