Parkinson Canada SuperWalk:
The Movement.

One thing constant in the Parkinson’s journey is change. It impacts everyone differently and effects entire families who must cope with things being outside of their control. If you or someone you know has Parkinson’s this is something you know well, and you don’t let obstacles stand in your way. You adapt, and we adapt with you, so that together we will not stop until there is a cure for Parkinson’s No Matter What.

This year, we call on you to walk with the Parkinson Community in September.

All of our community walk details are unclear at this time. One thing we are certain that won’t change is that people affected by Parkinson’s still benefit from support, education, advocacy and guidance on how to navigate Parkinson’s, and research to one day prevent it.

One more thing is that standing up to Parkinson’s together, as families and as communities, is an important demonstration of solidarity and coming together.

None of those things will change.

Here’s what you can expect from SuperWalk this year:

Overall Goal

  • We know that staying active is the key to living well with Parkinson's and to a healthy lifestyle generally. This summer, we're launching Parkinson Canada SuperWalk: The Movement, with a goal of encouraging 150 minutes of activity in whatever form that takes for you. Throughout the summer, we'll be launching specific challenges with new activity resources to support this goal.

May

  • A predictive exercise challenge.Set a time for a 1km walk; a 5km run; or the length of your local SuperWalk and work to meet that time over the course of the month (and summer). Walking not your thing? How about challenging yourself to do a certain number of crunches in an hour; set a target for how long you can hold a stretch, or simply time your efforts dusting the house.
  • An exclusive Town Hall with our new CEO, Dr. Karen Lee for all registered participants.
  • A prize draw for everyone who has completed the exercise.
  • View our May Campaign Resources and enter the challenge

June

  • The chance to dance. We’ve partnered with our colleagues at Canada’s National Ballet School as part of the Dancing for Parkinson’s Network Canada for years. Now, we bring their resources to you. Take part in dance-based exercises and learn easy, choreographed routines with options for youth, seniors, and everyone in between. Use this as an opportunity to stay active, and if you’d like you can share yourself dancing as part of a collective performance.
  • An exclusive Town Hall with a Parkinson Canada funded researcher for all registered participants.
  • A prize draw for anyone who has completed the exercise.

July

  • Live and recorded exercise classes to support your 150 minutes of exercise.. Our very own SuperWalk team member Lance Letain has weekly exercise classes for Canadians with Parkinson’s and Carepartners aimed at getting CSEP’s recommended 150 minutes of physical activity per week. We also have recorded PWR moves sessions and we’ll share relevant resources for all audiences with an eye toward moving together.
  • An exclusive Town Hall with another Parkinson Canada funded researcher for all registered participants.
  • A prize draw for anyone who has completed the exercise.

August

  • A 100,000 step challenge for 100,000 Canadians living with Parkinson’s. Set your own time frame, and walk with all participants on the path to a world without Parkinson’s.
  • Receiving all the tools you need to participate in a relevant, local walk. Either at your own home, in your neighbourhood, or otherwise.
  • An exclusive Town Hall with a top-secret special guest.
  • A prize draw for a Deluxe Walk in a Box kit to support the BEST SuperWalk experience for one lucky winner.

September

  • A unified, live national opening ceremony on Saturday, September 12 and emailed to all participants (with some exciting special guests).
  • Tools and opportunities to engage in SuperWalk with your family, neighbours and communities as appropriate in the public health context.
  • The same collective impact across the country.
  • Entry into our National Grand Prize draw for every $250 raised, with a Grand Prize of travel for 2 to any North American Parkinson Event in 2021.
