What to Expect

The American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) Northwest Chapter is proud to host two APDA Northwest Optimism Walk on September 30, one at the Ship Canal Trail in Seattle. With a new diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease (PD) every six minutes – that’s 240 people every day — the need for increased awareness and support is critical. There are approximately one million people living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) in the United States – 60,000 of which are right here in the Northwest.

With events across the country, the Optimism Walk series brings thousands of participants together to support APDA’s mission to help every person impacted by PD live life to the fullest. The funds raised at the Northwest Optimism Walks help APDA provide essential support groups, exercise classes designed specifically for people with PD, educational conferences, and so much more.

The Northwest Optimism Walk is a family-friendly fundraising eventthat offer a short walk of up to 1.5 miles and other activities including educational opportunities, sponsor activities, music and most importantly, the chance to bond with others who are similarly connected. The Walk is perfect for people with PD, their friends, family, coworkers, and care partners – anyone who wants to step up and help put an end to this disease.

Why does Seattle need this directory?


Covid has ruined the travel plans of so many people.  Maybe you are one of them.  Family trips, honeymoons, first time overseas trips postponed and cancelled.  Please explore this directory to create your own Round-the-World experience without traveling far from Seattle.  


Believe it or not, in 2022, New York City passed a law granting non-US citizens the right to vote in certain local and municipal elections.  Will Seattle follow NYC?  Time will tell.  If that comes to be, then this directory should be indispensable.  Let us know what you think.
