Every Victory Counts Challenge Virtual Event

July 2022

Every Victory Counts Challenge

Join us for a month of community, activity, and helping people with Parkinson’s live well today. Complete your challenge at a time, place, and pace that works for you.

This virtual event celebrates every victory, big and small, and highlights the importance of exercise to living well with Parkinson’s. Participants can create their own challenge for the month and choose to run, cycle, log walking miles, dance, box, swim, or any combination of activity to join in the virtual event. The event welcomes with open arms everyone from ultra-runners and cyclists to people who want extra motivation to walk around their block every day.

Does your business encourage movement and living well? Join us as an EVCC sponsor!

Highlights from the 2021 Event

Wendy Ericson
Every Victory Counts Challenge Participant

“This was a new experience for me, and it turned out to be a great blessing and life direction changer. Participating gave me new confidence and strength that was greatly needed. Thank you for your support for the PD community and helping me realize that I can still live well and be active and strong and do hard things!”

“Not only does every victory count, but every story counts. Every story needs to be told. And every story needs to be listened to.”

Amy Carlson
Every Victory Counts Challenge Participant

“The Challenge was great in so many ways. An old friend of mine whose brother was recently diagnosed recruited her entire family to participate. She and her mom walked every day for the month – and her kids participated too. It was so cool to see her family embrace the challenge. I met some new friends in the ‘Race Village,’ I got up at 4:30 am to start a zoom with some of them and I ended up staying awake with them instead of going back to bed because the connection was so magical. I completed my fourth month of Amy Says Dance which was part of my goal.”
