Please Give Today For A Better Tomorrow
I am in no way finished with summer, but as autumn approaches so does the Parkinson’s Annual SuperWalk.
Firstly, I want to thank everyone who contributed to my 2020 fundraising campaign. My final tally was $36,250.00 - #1 across Canada. This is a very impressive number, however the number of Canadians diagnosed with Parkinson’s - over 25 every day and the number of Canadians who suffer from Parkinson’s Disease - over 130,000, these are the numbers that have compelled me to join the 2021 SuperWalk campaign. Once again I am blessed to have a wonderful bunch of volunteers to assist me with my fundraising campaign: Jack Armour, Brian Bartlett, Holly Brackenridge, Tracey Cockfield, Barb and Don Dunford, Steve Everson, Brian Higgins, Diane Livingstone, Len Powers and Mark Vitarelli.
This brings me to once again ask for your donation in raising vital funds which will be used for support, advocacy, research and ultimately a Cure for Parkinson’s Disease.
I have been very lucky in that my Parkinson’s is not progressing rapidly and I am not currently in need of medications to control the effects of this disease. Others are not so lucky. I am grateful for every dollar received - be it through my campaign here in Peterborough or through any of the numerous fund raising efforts across Canada. My personal goal is to raise $15,000 this year making a two year total of over $50,000.00. We are all walking together towards A World Without Parkinson’s: No Matter What.
Canadians living with Parkinson’s can not do this alone - we need your help. Donations may be made online: http://donate.parkinson.ca/goto/Ted_Higgins, or by cheque payable to Parkinson Canada and forward to:
