Our team of Rock Steady boxing volunteers is participating in a community fundraising effort in support of Parkinson Canada. The fundraising event is called Wingin' It for Parkinson's and is being held at Kingshead Pub on April 22nd, 2017.
Together, we can raise funds for research, education and support services to benefit more than 100,000 Canadians living with Parkinson’s. Research into the causes of Parkinson’s will help find better treatments and one day, a cure.
Wingin' it for Parkinson's was formed out of a desire to create an event which bridged two generations. We wanted to create something that would attract a younger audience while encouraging an older one.
Teams of five enter a tournament where only the fastest eaters will move on.
Each team member must eat five hot wings and drink an 8oz glass of beer. Once they finish, the next member of the team can start their wings and beer, and on it goes.
Twenty teams will be entered, the first round is divided up into two waves, with the top three teams from both waves advancing to the next round.
The semi-finals will proceed with all six teams competing at the same time. Once again, the top three teams will advance into the finals.
The finals will have the top three teams competing for their name on the WiP trophy and bragging rights for the year!
I am asking you to help by supporting my fundraising efforts with a donation. Making a tax deductible online donation is quick, easy and will make a difference in the lives of Canadians living with Parkinson’s.
