Today (Sept. 9th 2023) was the day of the Parkinson’s Superwalk. I participated in Kamloops walk on the way home from our Western Canada adventure!! This event is the largest annual fundraiser for Parkinson Society of British Columbia (PSBC), supporting over 15,000 people living with Parkinson's in BC. It was a symbolic walk structured for participation for all.
Thank you very much to all of those who helped me raise $2135.00. I'm excited to let you know that together we can continue making a positive impact in the lives of people living with Parkinson's disease. Your support will help PSBC expand vital programs and services and fund innovative research. It's all about improving the lives of people affected by Parkinson's and every little bit counts!
Donations will still be accepted over the next few weeks if you would still like to donate.
As most of you know I was diagnosed with Parkinson's over 10 years ago. I have had the support of my husband and son helping me everyday with the ups and downs. The support of my employer who always takes into consideration the needs of the people who work for him, as well as my co-workers and extended family.
Now that I have changed my focus from my career to other pursuits, I am getting more involved in ways that I can help others in my situation. So, this year I am participating in the Parkinson Society of BC’s Superwalk to raise awareness of Parkinson’s that can affect people of all ages.
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. Currently, there is no cure.
I hope you’ll support my walk this year and help me reach my fundraising goal. Your donation will help Parkinson Society British Columbia continue to provide valuable programs, services, advocacy efforts, and research contributions.
Please support me. Thank you!
