Continuing the journey . . . it is easier now . . .
Welcome back, my friends, I hope you know how much you mean to us. Some of you have staunchly stood beside us since we embarked on this Parkinson's journey some 29 years ago. Others of you have come alongside us on the way, but all of you have been faithful to help in whatever way you could. New and innovative Parkinson's treatments have improved the quality of life for affected people, like the DBS surgery I had last year, yet a cure still eludes us. We're walking for a cure.
It will be a very different walk this year. Since we have to maintain social distancing and all of the pandemic "rules." there will not be a walk at Delki Dozzi park. In fact, there will not be a group walk as such. We'll watch the launch on the internet, and if we are able to perhaps a few of us can walk around the block. Whether we actually walk or not doesn't really matter. What does matter is that we raise funds together for education and support services, not only for people with Parkinson's, but also for their caregivers and family members. This annual event also raises funds for research into the causes of Parkinson's, better treatments and one day, a cure.
This year's cross-Canada target has changed, as we realize many of our usual donors are now in a precarious employment situation. However, every dollar means new hope, and every dollar counts!
Would you walk with me or sponsor me, and bring us closer to that goal? Let me know if you are planning to walk with us or around your own block. We can schedule departures to have people walk around the block, maintaining the 2 meter spacing and wearing our masks, just to provide awareness of the cause of Parkinson's. Perhaps if you have a T-shirt from another year you could wear that as well. Needless to say, there will be no food or beverages served (blame Covid), so BYOB of water! Saturday, Sept. 12, Launch at 11 am on Facebook Live or live-streaming from the superwalk website.
We do appreciate your support and your participation in this very unusual event.
Nora Lea & Wayne
