Join the DMRF for a day at the zoo to raise awareness and funds for dystonia research

The Pittsburgh Zoo is one of 13 locations across the U.S. that will host a Dystonia Zoo Walk in 2018. Last year, Dystonia Zoo Walks in 12 cities drew over 5,000 participants. This will be a family-friendly community day at the Zoo to raise awareness about dystonia. Participants are invited to walk as much or as little as they would like; there are no mileage goals and no pledge money needed to participate in the Walk.

There will be games, face painting, refreshments, lots of door prizes, and some special guests.

Registration will open by 9:00 AM
Fees: $25 for Adults /$15 for children (12 yrs and under). This includes access to the zoo, refreshments, and a t-shirt.
