Everyday Heroes. Extraordinary Hope.
Welcome and thank you for visiting our team page for One Step! This September our team will be joining thousands of everyday heroes from communities across Canada to take part in Parkinson's annual SuperWalk.
As a team, we're committed to supporting Parkinson Canada because their need is only increasing. More than 25 Canadians are diagnosed with Parkinson's every day. By 2031, the number of people living with Parkinson's will more than double.
Parkinson's is a disease that I had limited knowledge about until a few months ago when my wife began working for the organization. Through support for her new position, I quickly learnt about the drastic effects it has on people, and will have on our society over the coming years as the number is slated to grow. This is a disease that not only effects the individual but those around them. Funds from Parkinson's SuperWalk goes towards the increasing need for support services, education, advocacy and research. And this is why I am asking for your help.
I wish to invite you to join our team on Sunday, September 10th at Earl Bales Park. For my out-of-town friends, please search above for a walk closest to you. You may also make a donation through one of our personal pages. Together we are taking One Step closer towards a cure.
Every dollar raised and every new team member means new hope. Thank you!
