Support Elayne for Parkinson SuperWalk
Everyday Heroes. Extraordinary Hope.
Thanks for taking a look at my personal page. This September, I’m joining everyday heroes from communities across Canada as part of Parkinson SuperWalk. I’d like to tell you why, and what your donation will do.
The need is only increasing. More than 25 Canadians are diagnosed with Parkinson's every day; more than one person every hour. By 2031, the number of people living with Parkinson’s in Canada will more than double. I am participating in Parkinson SuperWalk to fund the increasing need for support, education, advocacy and research. This is why I’m asking for your support today.
Help me ensure Parkinson Canada is there for Canadians living with Parkinson’s today – while funding research into better treatments and one day, a cure. Unfortunately as you may or may not know, it is too late for my sister to get the cure that we were all hoping for. But it’s not too late to make a difference.
This year I will be accepting donations in memory of my sister. It was 2001 at a family reunion that I first learned of my sister's diagnosis of PD. Since then the road has not been easy for her. She struggled mentally and physically as the symptoms increased year by year. The last few years was especially difficult with mobility and mental health. Finally her body gave in and now her mind is at rest. On June 10, 2019 we lost a beautiful soul. While the family was not expecting this to be so sudden, we are working through the steps of grief.
If you choose not to use the online method, I have pledge sheets for cash donations available up to the day prior of walk.
To show your support, click the DONATE NOW button on the right hand side of the page, above the progress meter and achievements.
Every dollar means new hope. Thank you!
