I am walking to raise money for the Parkinson's Society of British Columbia in honour of two of my family members; my Uncle Brad, who passed away in 2009, and my Mom Elaine, who is currently living with 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.
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.
The Parkinson's Society of BC provides much needed support to individuals living with Parkinson's and their families as well as advocacy efforts and research contributions. Please help me raise money to contribute to this excellent organization.
