Moving Day Chicago


Eckhartz Press publisher David Stern is walking in Moving Day Chicago, the National Parkinson's Foundation fundraising walk on October 20th. What is Moving Day? We'll let the NPF explain it in their own words...

Moving Day is your chance to speak up about Parkinson’s disease and move others to take action. It is a movement for change—towards more awareness, more funding, and more understanding of a disease that affects so many of our family and friends. We use movement as a symbol of hope and progress because of its essential role in treating Parkinson’s. So choose to move any way you can by walking, stretching or doing yoga in our signature Movement Pavilion. Every move you make and every penny you raise will bring us closer to beating Parkinson’s!

Here are the details for the Chicago portion of Moving Day, if you'd like to participate in the event.

Moving Day Chicago will take place in Lincoln Park at Grove 2, just south of the Lincoln Park Zoo’s South Pond. Grove 2 is located just east of 1730 N. Stockton Drive, Chicago, IL. 60614 which is north of LaSalle Street.

Even if you can't participate in the event, you can help support the cause. Become part of the Eckhartz Press team, by clicking here. Our humble goal is to raise $1000 for Parkinson's research. Any little bit you can donate would be greatly appreciated.

An important part of our mission at Eckhartz Press is to serve the greater good, and this charity drive certainly qualifies. We hope you find it in your heart to come join us; in person or in spirit.
