It's time to be Everyday Heroes for the Parkinson SuperWalk
Everyday Heroes. Extraordinary Hope.
10 years ago, I walked in my first Superwalk in honour of my Grandmother, Lilian. Every year as the event grows, so does the support from my family and friends.
From Coast to Coast in Canada (British Columbia to Newfoundland), from Scotland and from the United States, I am reminded of just how amazing my Every Day Heroes are. With your help, we raised over $1800 last year and set a new personal record. I have decided that this year, I am aiming high and have set my goal at $2000.
Last year I was lucky enough to walk with Darryl and Franek (two of my very own Super Heroes) and I am blessed that they will be with me this year too. Not only did they pledge their support but they gave their time and it meant the world to me. I know that there are so many wonderful causes that need our help and if you are able to support this cause please know how much I appreciate your investment in finding a cure, your friendship, your support as always and your love.
Here are some startling and ineresting facts abouth Parkinsons':
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, advocacy and research.
Your donation fuels better health outcomes for Canadians living with Parkinson's today, and it supports the Parkinson Canada Research Program which works with Canada's brightest researchers to find the next big breakthroughs in treatment.
