This September, thousands of people across British Columbia, including Nelson, will be lacing up their shoes to participate in the national annual fundraiser for Parkinson’s disease, Parkinson SuperWalk.
SuperWalk will take place in 15 locations in BC and in 90 communities across Canada.
SuperWalk aims to raise $3 million nationally and $325,000 in British Columbia.
The 17th Annual Parkinson SuperWalk goes Sunday, September 9 throughout BC.
The SuperWalk is slated for Nelson's Rotary Lakeside Park at 11 a.m. Registration goes at 10 a.m.
Proceeds from SuperWalk directly support the goals of Parkinson Society British Columbia: advocacy, education, community outreach, scientific research and public awareness.
For families living with Parkinson’s disease, the Walk represents an opportunity to raise critical funds for the Society, but more importantly, it gives walkers hope.
Go to www.parkinson.bc.ca to register as a walker or to make a donation.
