Support Richard Molde for Parkinson SuperWalk
No Matter What
Richard Molde, a SuperWalk participant since 2016, first became involved in the event as a way to increase awareness about Parkinson’s and to raise funds for research. In 2018, he raised over $3,000 with the support of his team, “Team Molde”, and they are all planning to have another successful year in 2019.
After being diagnosed with Parkinson’s in December of 2000, Molde was told by his doctor not to “go home and sit in a chair”. Since then, Molde has done everything but that. When a support group formed in his area in 2013, he joined right away. His wife, Bev Molde says that “he is determined not to give in. Others at the group like to be around him”. For this reason and many others, Richard Molde was named the Support Group Hero – a representative for the support group chosen because of their determination to helping others. His never give up attitude is in line with this year’s campaign theme for Parkinson Canada SuperWalk ‘No Matter What’ which is meant to represent the strength of spirit and perseverance exhibited by people with Parkinson’s across the country.
Another reason for Richard Molde’s Hero title is his dedication to fundraising for the Parkinson Canada SuperWalk. In 2017, The Molde’s held their first Pedal for Parkinson event that includes a barbeque and a timed bike race. They were blown away with the success of the event and this year will mark their third year running it.
Richard and Bev Molde continue to participate in the SuperWalk, year after year, because of the experience. “Walking together has brought us closer as a family,” says Bev Molde. “The support that comes from this event is amazing.
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.
