DRUMS FOR PARKINSON'S
Drums For Parkinson's is a 12 hour live streaming Drum-a-thon in support of Parkinson Canada. This years event will be taking place on August 29th, 2021 from 9am-9pm and will be live streaming on YouTube, Facebook and Twitch. Last years inaugural event raised $10,700 and this year the goal is $20,000. All proceeds go directly to Parkinson Canada towards research and support for people living with Parkinson's.
The idea was inspired by my father, Alan Farmer who was diagnosed with Parkinson's over 14 years ago. Although there are procedures and medications to help with symptoms, there is currently no cure and I'm hoping to help change that.
Anyone that donates $25 or more and lives in Canada will automatically be entered into a draw to win one of many prizes that will be randomly drawn on the day of the event. Full prize list will be announced in July.
Stay tuned to the website www.drumsforparkinsons.com and the Facebook page www.facebook.com/drumsforparkinsons for updates!
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.
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, a cure.
