As another year comes around to SuperWalk time, we reflect on some of the recent challenges we have faced and are ever so grateful for the love and support we give each other. Throughout the COVID19 pandemic when all services were withdrawn in our community, our support group , Good Vibrations, realized the true meaning of support. We were all affected by the social isolation and discontinuation of community programs such as, exercise, singing, and voice therapy. In addition, we were saddened by the passing of one of our members, Agnes Parke. She was a very warm, caring woman and her calm approach and lovely smile helped to dispel anxiety whenever present. In honour of her passing, our team is virtually walking for her this year.
Our GV Team goal is to offer our support and encouragement to each other, to persevere, never give up – NO MATTER WHAT- and to stay healthy as we await new research findings and treatment therapies that will improve the quality of life for all those living with PD. We can still meet monthly, keeping our social distance, in a park setting, as we share laughter, tears and virtual hugs. It is truly good for our mental health!
Please join us by donating to any member of our team as we help Parkinson’s Society of BC provide relevant programs and services, fund research and advocate on our behalf. Thank you in advance for your contribution, large or small, as we are grateful for your support and caring.
