I’ve been personally touched by the challenges of Parkinson’s disease. As this disease tries to take over my body, I'm fighting back with everything I've got by spending my summer and fall walking through Europe. Since exercise is the only way to slow down the progression of Parkinson's disease my SuperWalk will start at the end of June. I will begin my walk in Italy then head to Liechtenstein, on to the Camino del Norte in August, September the West Highland Way in Scotland, then on to Ireland and England ending with some walking in France before heading home in October! I'm super excited to see where this adventure will take me! Exercise is what I love to do so the Parkinson's SuperWalk is a fantastic way for me to give back.
All contributions, no matter how big or how small, are critical to those affected by Parkinson's. I hope you’ll support my walk this year and help me reach my fundraising goal.
Parkinson's disease is the second-most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer's and can manifest itself in a range of both motor and non-motor symptoms. Living with Parkinson's can be incredibly challenging for the individual as well as for their family, friends, and carepartners. Currently, there is no cure.
