Support Jessie Gordon, Team: 4 Sisters for Parkinson SuperWalk
This year our 3 Sisters team of Sheila Gordon-Dillane, Beth Moore and Jessie Gordon has expanded to include our sister-in-law, Joyce Gordon, who retired earlier this year from her position as President and CEO of Parkinson Canada. Since the official Parkinson Canada Superwalk is suspended this year, The Four Sisters team will be hiking a trail on Big Island in Pigeon Lake, pictures to follow. Our Team will be joining others in communities across Canada creating their own walks to raise money for research and support of those living with Parkinson's as part of Parkinson Canada SuperWalk.
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. My sister, Sheila, was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2007 and lives every day with its debilitating effects and the side effects of the medications that manage some of the symptoms but are not a cure for the disease. Beth, Joyce and I are walking with Sheila as the 4 Sisters Team in the hope that a cure will soon be found.
This has been difficult year for charities like Parkinson Canada, with research funds diverted to finding a vaccine for Covid-19, live fundraising events like SuperWalk having to go virtual and donations reduced because of the economic downturn. Whatever donation you are able to make will be appreciated all the more this year!
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 soon, a cure.
