Support Linda Ritchey for Parkinson SuperWalk
Our Parkinson Community Stands Together: No Matter What.
I was contacted by a good friend of mine last week. Her name is Daisy, She had some news to share with me that was very hard to hear. She had recently been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. I was fortunate to get to know Daisy well when we walked the Portuguese Coastal Camino in October, 2019. True to what I came to know about Daisy, she met the news of this diagnosis with courage and optimism. She told me she is continuing to exercise and would be pursuing her goal of studying for and obtaining a PHd starting this fall. I am in awe of daisy's strength and fortitude and I have decided to participate in the Parkinson's Canada Superwalk. This year, the Canada Superwalk will take place all accross Canada as a virtual event I have joined the Montreal group and will be walking on September 13, 2020.
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, and to one day fine the cure.
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.
