Pacing for Parkinson's is back for 2021!
Registration Is Now Open!

We’re pleased to announce
our second-ever P4P Week!

The P4P committee has determined that for the health and safety of our community, it’s best and safest for us to fundraise and celebrate online again this year and rejoin the Baltimore Running Festival in 2022.

Pacing for Parkinson’s 2021 will focus on the stories of our community. Though we are dispersed this year, our community remains strong because of the patients, families, care providers, and researchers who contribute so much to the fight against Parkinson’s.

In the months leading up to P4P Week, we’ll tell the stories of our community through our Parkinson’s Warriors series. (Have a story to share? Contact us at pacing4parkinsons@gmail.com.)  

We will be celebrating Pacing for Parkinson’s 2021 virtually from Saturday, October 2, through Saturday, October 9.

To participate in P4P Week, all you need to do is fundraise and move! And, because of our virtual format, anyone can participate. Regardless of your age, ability, identity, or where you live, everyone can join in on the P4P Week 2021 fun!

During P4P Week, we’ll highlight different types of movement each day and we’ll meet a different Parkinson’s Warrior in our community. We’re still working out a schedule, but you can expect to learn more about and have a chance to try walking, running, yoga, boxing, stretching and more.

Steps to join P4P 2021:
  1. Create a fundraising page to join the team. Registration is FREE and open to all!
  2. Let your friends and family know what you’re doing and why the cause is important to you.
  3. Fundraise to support the cause. There's no fundraising minimum this year, but every penny supports Parkinson's research and Johns Hopkins Medicine. You can use our fundraiser’s toolkit, complete with downloadable templates and social media images, if you need help.
  4. Come October, get moving! You can run, walk, or bike; you can do yoga or cut the grass. You can even walk up and down the hallway!

Look for fun competitions, social media posts, and opportunities to connect with other P4Pers all week long.

What is P4P?
Pacing for Parkinson's (P4P) is a large charity team that in typical years participates in the Baltimore Running Festival. It is a volunteer-led campaign that raises awareness of and funds for Parkinson’s disease (PD) research, community outreach, education, and patient care at Johns Hopkins. The Johns Hopkins Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Center provides comprehensive, compassionate, and timely treatment to people living with PD and other movement disorders.
2021 marks the P4P's 13th year of raising funds and
awareness for Parkinson's Disease.
