Support [NAME] for Parkinson SuperWalk
Our Parkinson Community Stands Together: No Matter What.
As the 12 year for my participation in the Parkinson SuperWalk approaches, there are two things I know:
#1 - I could not do this without your support. Truly.
#2 - Change is inevitable. Even when you don't think it will happen. Even when you least expect it.
When COVID-19 became a new 'word', it meant change for all us. Change is still change. No matter how big or how small. No Matter What.
The SuperWalk, like some many other terrific causes, had to change and adapt. To ensure Social Distancing and to limit the risks from large gatherings, there is no walk being held this year. But there is a "Walk in a Box" which allows us to walk anywhere, anytime!
I thought a lot about how and if I was going to do the Superwalk this year. The IF lasted about 2 seconds. The HOW was a bit more challenging. The SuperWalk would have been held on Sept 12th which was the same day I was going to be in British Columbia for a family celebration. So .... we used our trip to BC to walk for my Grandmother and spend time in some of her favourite places including Kin Beach, Kal Lake, Lake Okanagan, Oyama, Bridal Veil Falls and Manning Park. I know she was smiling down on us while we walked and I shared stories about my favourite memories of her and with her, with those I love.
I also made the decision to not put a fundraising goal this year. With all the challenges that we are facing and all the wonderful causes that still need help and support, I didn't feel it was the right thing to do. So this year I am thanking you for all that you have done to support me, raise me up and love me. If you have the opportunity to donate, please know how much it means. Each and everyone of you have supported me without fail. Just the fact that you considered it, means more than I can express.
But please do not add any additional burden or expense to your plates. Knowing how much support I have is really the greatest gift ever. And next year, we will have a chance to walk again! Please continue to be safe, be well, be healthy, be kind and know you are loved.
With my Love and Thanks,
