In lieu of birthday presents for Avery's 11th Birthday, Avery asked friends and family to donate to Parkinson Canada in support of her Grandfather, Ed
Watching her grandfather with Parkinson's disease has been a difficult task, to say the least. An inspirational philanthropist, Avery's kind ask has generated a $200 impact.
In memory of her father, Alysa and family fundraised over $2,000 in support of Parkinson Canada through the Disneyland Paris Magic Run, this past September.
“It was an awesome trip. My dad's favourite character was Goofy and right before I ran over the finish line, there he was. I told him about my dad and he gave me a hug and we ran across the finish line together. Lots of tears - it was lovely.” - Alysa
My father, Rudy Erfle, was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease 10 years ago. Although it has caused changes to my dad's life, he always persevered through all the challenges he has been faced with. The Erfle's have decided to combine our love for running and support for Parkinson's disease and will be hosting the first annual Rudy's Run for Parkinson's on August 18th, 2018.

My godfather experienced the challenges of living with Parkinson’s with strength and perseverance. He taught me how to fight on, no matter what. This is how Parkinson’s impacted me.
In 2016 and ’17 I took on my own challenge - crossing hot-air-ballooning and skydiving off of my bucket list. Facing fears and collecting pledges along the way. This is how I impacted Parkinson’s.
By the time I was born my paternal grandfather had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s. I watched his disease progress throughout my childhood, only to see my father diagnosed at the young age of 48 when I was just 19. I’ve seen how Parkinson’s changes lives. And now, I’m trying to change it.
In 2008 I founded Lows in Motion, a unique and energetic “Shaker” pun intended. Our annual event provides a fun opportunity for our community to unite in the fight against Parkinson’s.
The concept was launched on Pi Day (March 14, or 3.14) as a rallying cry for our Chapters and Support Groups, retirement and long term care communities, school groups, volunteers and other communities to host a bake sale in support of Parkinson Canada. It’s just one of the many ways that Canadians impacted by Parkinson’s choose to support Parkinson Canada.
To host your very own Pi(es) for Parkinson’s, please download our promotional kit! This kit has everything you need from recipes to menus, promotional posters and more.
