Our Parkinson Community Stands Together: No Matter What.

The 2020 realities of Covid-19 across Canada have made it clear that large scale, coordinated public gatherings cannot be hosted this September. The perseverance of the Parkinson Community has made it clearer still that we will not let obstacles stand in our way. It’s not where you walk. It’s why you walk. We walk together on the path to a world without Parkinson’s: No Matter What.

A message from the Vaughan SuperWalk Committee:

OUR PARKINSON COMMUNITY STANDS TOGETHER: NO MATTER WHAT

New realities, same mission
This year we will be celebrating Vaughan SuperWalk differently. We’ve had to think out of the box, literally, and have created a Walk in a Box experience for Teams to make Superwalk 2020 Weekend memorable.

When is SuperWalk Weekend?
You’ll have the opportunity to participate on either Saturday, September 12 or Sunday, September 13th

How will SuperWalk work this year?
This year Vaughan SuperWalk is promoting 'Walk Your Way'. Your SuperWalk experience will be customized for what you or your Team plans based on your creativity and COVID-19 restrictions. Below is an itinerary for the SuperWalk Weekend:

What is a Walk in a Box?
The Walk in a Box includes helpful tools such as a donor checklist, fundraising tips and tricks along with customizable posters that you can share on social media during the SuperWalk campaign.
Download the tools and resources available so you can celebrate Vaughan SuperWalk at home with your Team or in your small personal "bubble". Walk in a Box is designed to help you make a custom, meaningful Vaughan SuperWalk experience. Register online now to receive a physical Walk in a Box kit before September 12!
