Parkinson Canada SuperWalk will take place September 16 on John Abbott and MacDonald Campuses in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue at 12 p.m. Two new routes are proposed, 1km or 4.5km, where one can stroll, walk or run. Parkinson’s affects over 100,000 Canadians, a number expected to double by 2030. Parkinson SuperWalk is a family outing with a special purpose. It is a great opportunity for people with Parkinson’s to meet others living with the disease, talk with their families, and begin to build a supportive network. Funds raised are invested in Quebec to provide services, education and advocacy for people affected by Parkinson’s and for research into improving treatments and finding a cure. To take part in the walk or support someone who will be walking, register today at www.ParkinsonSuperWalk.ca or call Lisa Mintz (514) 357-4291 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
