* indicates my words added to this form letter.
I’ve been personally touched by the challenges of Parkinson’s disease.
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. *There is no government funding therefore donations and fundraisers are relied upon.*
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 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, *but I'm not asking for huge amounts of money. I have chosen a very modest goal and expectation for donations to support my walk with the "Sunshine Coast Crusaders". I don't want to break your piggy bank!*
*If you want to check us out, yell words of encouragement or join us, I'll be walking Sept. 8 starting at 1000 rain or shine from the Davis Bay Pier.*
Please support me. Thank you! Patty
