Fight Parkinson’s disease by joining us for our annual 5K Walk in support of the Parkinson’s Association of San Diego! This year, join us in-person or virtual!

Your support of Step-by-Step Walk enables PASD to offer critical resources to thousand’s of individuals who have, or are impacted by, Parkinson’s disease right here in San Diego County. Your help is critical to sustain our outreach and our ability to serve the community.

All contributions remain in the County and also help local caregivers and families of those in need. Put on your walking shoes to give people with Parkinson’s disease a great resource and a steadfast ally!

Walk Virtually!

Take a cellphone video “selfie” of your Virtual Walk (short, max 30 seconds) showing your creative ways of exercising in your favorite location. Then follow the instructions that you will receive when you complete your registration. You may see your selfie on our website or in our E-blasts!

PASD and "Fighting Parkinson's Step by Step" 5k organizers are following CDC, state and local guidelines related to outdoor events and prevention of the spread of COVID-19, including variants:

CDC "Recommendations for Outdoor Settings": Current data suggest the risk of transmission of SARS-COV-2 in outdoor settings is minimal. In general, fully vaccinated people do not need to wear a mask outdoors. Fully vaccinated people might choose to wear a mask in crowded outdoor settings if they or someone in their household is immunocompromised.

People who are immunocompromised should be counseled about the potential for reduced immune responses to COVID-19 vaccines and to follow current prevention measures (including wearing a mask, staying 6 feet apart from others they don’t live with, and avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated indoor spaces) regardless of their vaccination status to protect themselves against COVID-19 until advised otherwise by their healthcare provider.

Fully vaccinated people might choose to mask regardless of the level of transmission, particularly if they or someone in their household is immunocompromised or at increased risk for severe disease, or if someone in their household is unvaccinated. People who are at increased risk for severe disease include older adults and those who have certain medical conditions, such as diabetes, overweight or obesity, and heart conditions.

Outside your home: Put 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household.

Remember that some people without symptoms may be able to spread virus. Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from other people. Keeping distance from others is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
