Support [NAME] for Parkinson SuperWalk
Thanks for visiting my personal page.
I am participating in the SuperWalk for a very personal reason, 7 years ago I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and within the last year my Mother has also been diagnosed with Parkinson’s. This disease has forced me to stop working however it hasn’t stopped me from fighting back. One way I fight back is as a member of Boxing 4 Health, a fitness program for people with Parkinson’s. This is the third year that the Boxers, trainers, and the Boxer’s families and friends have participated in the Parkinson’s SuperWalk. The 2018 Boxing 4 Health team raise over $42,000, making us the highest fundraisers in the Ottawa area and one of the highest in Canada. On September 7, with support from people like you, we're hoping to do even better.
In 2018 I was joined on the walk by my wife and daughter, (see photograph). As a family we raised over $6,500 and are hoping to exceed that this year.
With more than 25 Canadian diagnosed with Parkinson's every day (more than one person every hour), and by 2031, the number of people living with Parkinson’s in Canada will more than double the need for increasing support is growing. Your donations will fund the increasing need for support, advocacy and research.
