Show us your Shake
Hello, my name is Greg McGinnis; this is my wife Judy and our son Tyler. Ten years ago I was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s disease; I was shocked to hear this as I did not know what it was. I did my homework and learned about the disease and worked to help raise funds to find a cause and cure for this disease. I ran a golf tournament over the past 9 years and now we have decided to start the “Family & Friends of Parkinson’s SHOW US YOUR SHAKE”.
The name of this campaign came about when Tyler was 5 and I was pouring his milk at dinner he looked at me with a smile and said “Dad you always make me a milk shake”. Well now I want you to “show us your Shake” make different flavoured shakes or protein shakes and show us what they are, but don’t stop there, challenge your friends and family to do the same. I would also ask that you make a donation to the Parkinson Society to help with finding a cause and cure for this disease.
There are roughly 100,000 people in Canada with Parkinson’s disease, this number is only predicated to go up in time. We need to find a cause and cure so our family members will not have to deal with this disease.
Please help us by challenging your family to Show us your Shake and make donations to help find the cure - or join our team and start your own fundraising.
