Support Barb Dunford, Dave Caton, Tony Schnegg & Carolyn Brackenridge for Parkinson SuperWalk
Our Parkinson Community Stands Together: No Matter What.
This year we are walking to support our loved ones and friend's loved ones who have been affected by Parkinsons. My Mom Barb Dunford was diagnosed in 2018 and we are all learning the many faces of Parkinsons through experience and "trial and error" with meds. Parkinsons has so many faces and affects everyone at varying levels and speed. Dave Caton was diagnosed in 2006 and has bravely been battling the disease with his family at his side every step of the way. Tony Schnegg was diagnosed in 2017 and and is huge advocate in keeping busy and living a healthy lifestyle to keep symptoms to a minimum. Most recently my mother in law Carolyn Brackenridge was diagnosed in April of this year and the news came as quite a shock to us all and we are all so happy we can all support her by rallying together for this walk.
On behalf of our team i would like to thank each and every one of you for joining our walk and or donating. The support for our loved ones is greatly appreciated..
Love and Light
Holly & Our Super Parents Team
One thing that is constant in the journey with Parkinson's is change. It is an individual condition that impacts everyone differently. My family has learned through our journey is that we need to stay flexible, and understand that there are things outside of our control. This year, we are planning to walk with the Parkinson Community in September.
While we’re not sure what that event will look like, one thing I am certain of is that Parkinson’s is still an important cause and that families impacted by Parkinson’s still benefit from support, education, advocacy and guidance on how to navigate it, and research to one day prevent it. My walk and your donation support these important goals.
This September, I’m joining everyday heroes from communities across Canada 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.
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.
