Welcome to Dianne's Superwalk Page!!
Most of you already know this, but for those of you who don't, I was diagnosed with Parkinsons's Disease in the fall of 2013. Parkinson's runs in my family, so this walk is important to me for many reasons. My mom's father had Parkinsons, as do several of her cousins. I would like to se a cure, not so much for me, but for my children who may be at risk of developing this disease.
This will be my fourth walk and I hope that I do as well as I did last year! I reached my goal of $2000, so I raised it to $2500!!
WOW! I reached my goal of $2500!!!! Amazing - I raised it again to $2750! I only have $110 to go to meet my latest goal!!! There are 2 weeks to go!
I did it!!! I surpassed my last goal and raised $2790!!!! I'm going to raise my goal again - this time to $3000. 6 days left and I am so thankful for all the donations and support I've received. I know I'll reach and surpass my goal. I did it - with your help. I have raised $3020 - the most I have ever raised!!! This is awesome and I can't thank you enough.
In September my family and I will join 14,000 Canadians who take part in the Parkinson SuperWalk. Together we raise funds for education and support services, not only for people with Parkinson's, but also for their caregivers and family members too in communities across Canada. This annual event also raises funds for research into the causes of Parkinson's, better treatments and one day, a cure. When you walk with me or sponsor me, you bring us closer to this year's goal of $3 million. Every dollar means new hope. Thank you!
