I’ve been personally touched by the challenges of Parkinson’s disease. I have been living with Parkinson's for 12 years - since diagnosis in 2008.
This year the Superwalk is a bit different to usual. Due to the coronovirus, the walk will be 'virtual' this year! In addition though, Parkinson's BC has set some challenges for participants during the three months (June - August) before the virtual walk! From encouraging people to donate funds, to donate myself, to try new activities and to be more active!
I hope you’ll support my walk this year and help me reach my 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 their family, friends and carepartners. Currently, there is no cure. Many consider Parkinson's as another pandemic as there as so many cases being diagnosed at the moment.
Your donation will help Parkinson Society British Columbia continue to provide valuable programs, services, advocacy efforts and research contributions. Parkinson Society BC provide a huge amount of support to those who live with this disease and those who care for them. Particularly over the last few months I have been incredibly thankful to them for the many online exercise classes provided while we have been unable to go out or join in with normal activities. From Pilates to Ready Steady Boxing to Fitness Fridays and Move with Shelly there has been always something to keep me moving!
Please support me. Thank you!
