Support Liz Loewen for Parkinson SuperWalk
This year's Parkinson Canada SuperWalk also marks three years since my PD diagnosis.
Much has changed for me since that time but I have been strengthened by the support of my family, friends and colleagues.
Parkinson Canada was an invaluable resource when I was first diagnosed and continues to be and I would like to give back. I am also now a member of the Parkinson Canada Advisory Council - bringing the voice of those impacted by Parkinson's to the work of the organization.
My target for the day is 20 kms total (a combination of walking, running, cycling, paddling or golfing - maybe all 5!). Your donation will support the work of Parkinson Canada and, in particular, research and advocacy.
The Parkinson Community Stands Together: No Matter What.
One thing that is constant in the journey with Parkinson's is change. It is an individual condition that impacts everyone differently. The one constant is the need to stay flexible, and understand that there are things outside of our control.
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.
