How it Works
Dystonia Zoo Walks are a chance for the dystonia community to gather, advocate, and spread hope. Those who are able are encouraged to walk the zoo grounds to help spread awareness. There is no designated walking course. You walk at your own pace and experience the zoo at your leisure. You and your Team will gather in a designated area on the morning of the event to interact with other participants and enjoy the event festivities. After the brief remarks from local medical experts and patient advocates you are free to enjoy the zoo at your own leisure, raising awareness among zoo patrons with your dystonia awareness t-shirt.
Dystonia Zoo Walks are a community effort - the more people who attend, the greater our impact. You're making a positive impact in the lives of those affected by dystonia by helping raise funds to support our mission to advance research while providing information and support to families impacted by all forms of dystonia. Invite your friends and family and START your TEAM today! Teams of 10 people or more will receive a personalized team t-shirt. Teams must be completely registered by Monday, July 6 to ensure that your custom team t-shirt will be available. All t-shirts will be available for pick-up the morning of the event during registration - t-shirts will not be shipped.
