Welcome to Parkinson's Super-walk 2020
September 2020 is here and once more I am preparing to raise funds to help find the elusive cure for this debilitating disease and to hopefully also to raise awareness of the effect Parkinson's has on the individual and their families.
It is also a time to honour and remember all those who are living with or have lost their battle to this cruel debilitating life altering condition. It is now six years since Charles lost his battle.
On September 13th 2020 I will again walk to honour the memory of Charles and his long struggle. In Durham Region we continue the good fight with hope and optimism a cure will be found. This year will be different with all things going virtual, I will however take a stroll along the lake and remember the great sailing days we had and also watch the Monarch butterflies as they prepare to head south.
Together with 14000 Canadians we raise funds for education and support services, not only for people with Parkinson's, but also for their caregivers and family members in communities across Canada. This annual event also raises funds for research into the causes of Parkinson's, better treatments and one day, a cure.
When you walk with me or sponsor me, you bring us closer to this year's goal of $3 million. Every dollar means new hope. Thank you in advance for your support. Unfortunately with covid life is very different and I will have to walk alone (sounds like a song!!) but the venue by the lake is still lovely and I look forward to a sunny day so I can watch the sail boats and the Monarch butterflies prepare to head south. as we say in Ajax our walk is one metre to five kilometres. I hope you can once again support this worthy and personal cause.
