As many of you know our brother Ian lost his battle with Parkinson’s disease in May. He was the athlete of the family competing in Iron Man competitions, Triathlons and other sporting events.
Even after being diagnosed in his 40’s he continued to ride his bike and in 2012 completed the 92km Medio Fondo in just over 4 hours! Ian wanted to prove that being diagnosed with Parkinson’s does not mean you have to give up and sit on the couch.
To honour Ian, my sister Janet and I have registered in the year's walk and we would love for you to join our team and walk with us. If you are unable to attend please consider making a donation to help us reach our fundraising goal.
All contributions, no matter how big or how small, are critical to those affected by Parkinson's.
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.
Your donation will help Parkinson Society British Columbia continue to provide valuable programs, services, advocacy efforts, and research contributions.
Every dollar is one step closer to improving the lives of those in need.
Please support me. Thank you!
