Local Walk Coordinator
Brenda has been involved at all point of the volunteer spectrum. Being diagnosed in 2008 only 6 months after retiring Brenda got involved almost immediately.
After participating in SuperWalk Saskatoon in 2009, she went back to Regina and started a SuperWalk in the queen city in 2010. Brenda was chief organizer with the help of Rick, her husband of 40 years for the first 2 years in Regina, SK. She was involved in everything from soup to nuts.
Office Support Volunteer
After spending her entire career as an executive assistant in the corporate world, Dhun Ward was looking to do something meaningful with her time after she retired. Living close by, knowing someone employed there, and having some friends with Parkinson's, made Parkinson Canada the ideal non-profit to volunteer with.
Dhun comes in weekly to help out with administrative work, and is a valuable member of the SuperWalk team. A year long process, she helps out both pre and post walk. In the months leading up to this year's SuperWalk, she was busy on the phones contacting former walkers and donors and sending out materials to walk organizers.
Event Day Volunteer
Alana is one of hundreds youth volunteers who take part in SuperWalk across the country, many of whom use the event as a way to fulfill community hours programs while giving back.
"This will be my fourth year volunteering at Parkinson Canada SuperWalk in Winnipeg. In 2013 and 2014, I helped with the SuperWalks held in Winnipeg and in Gimli, Manitoba.
In the past, I've helped with the event setup before the walk as well as registration on walk day. However, last year I was asked if I could help by organizing and contacting the mascots for the event in addition to helping with set up the night before. The mascots were a lot of fun and joined in the exercise warm-up, posed for photos, and mingled with the walkers before the walk began and even stayed after the walkers returned from the course."
