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!

"Don't Give Up" is a message of hope and resilience dedicated to all of those who battle the non-motor "Parkinson's disease symptoms that you don't see", but that heavily impact quality of life. It is an invitation to look at a broader picture of what living with PD is, from the perspective of newly diagnosed and young onset PWPs who are determined to never give up.

We thank you for hearing our story, told by songwriter José María Lobo in the captivating song “I am the Beat of another Song - Parkinsong”. We hope it will become a tool to raise awareness and give a voice to the Spanish speaking Parkinson’s community around the world. Together we can advocate for the unique challenges of not only Latinos but all people with Parkinson’s disease.
