My Rock, My Inspiration, My Hero, My Mother!
Hello, This is Kim (Munn) Goebel and this September I will again join 14,000+ Canadians who take part in the Parkinson SuperWalk. Together we raise funds for education and support services, not only for people with Parkinson's, but also for their caregivers and family members too in communities across Canada. This annual event also raises funds for research into the causes of Parkinson's, better treatments and one day, a cure. When you walk with me or sponsor me, you bring us closer to this year's goal of $3 million.
I am doing this in honour and memory of my mother Diana Munn who was a long time sufferer of this disease (20+ years). She is my inspiration because of her determination to keep her indepndance and not let this bring her down and she is my rock because she kept me focused on what is important in life.
If you know my Mum then you know what a wonderful woman she was. She opened her heart and her home to anyone who needed it, was always there to lend an ear or give sound advice. She had a heart of gold and a personality to match. You couldn't help but love her and if she didn't insult you then you either made her mad or she got bad vibes and didn't like you instantly. She was usually right on the money with this. Smart as a whip with quick wit and sharp tongue. She wored hard and put 110% into everything she did, from work, to taking care of her family, to crossword puzzles, to trivia.
I ask that other family members join my team (teamdianem1), even if you can only particiapate as a virtual walker, and help raise money to help find a cure on behalf of my mother who passed away on Jan. 3, 2017.
Please donate on in the name of this wonderful, mother, wife, sister, aunt and cousin. She is very special and we love her dearly.
Every dollar means new hope. Thank you!
