Parkinson Canada SuperWalk Belleville

Captain's Choice

I am writing to you to donate to Parkinson's research.

This September, I’m joining everyday heroes from communities across Canada as part of Parkinson Canada SuperWalk.

The reason? I have several members of my family who have or have had Parkinsons's. My wife lives with it, my brother and my mother-in-law died from it, my sister-in-law and my nephew-in-law live with it every day. That's more than enough for one family! Enough! I'm putting my foot down in the Parkinson Superwalk to raise money for Parkinson research.

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 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. 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.

To show your support, click the DONATE NOW button on the right hand side of the page, above the progress meter and achievements. You'll be supporting the team Captain's Choice, commemorating our dog who passed away this spring and cannot walk with me.

Every dollar means new hope. Thank you!

Your gift shows support for the Parkinson Community. It shows them that no matter how things change and no matter what days may bring there is strength in numbers. With unwavering spirits - letting no obstacle hold us back. No matter what.
Thank you.
