2012 marks the 22nd anniversary of Superwalk, Parkinson Society’s annual fundraising event. In 2011, a record $3 million dollars was raised nationally through SuperWalk, funding 28 research projects as well as providing resources for education, advocacy and support services to the over 100,000 Canadians living with this debilitating disease. This year, it is our goal to raise $3 million, $900, 000 of which is hoped to come from generous supporters in Central and Northern Ontario.
The Bracebridge SuperWalk will be held on Saturday, September 8th at Monck Public School, with registration beginning at 9:00 am. This is a fun family event with participants ranging from infancy and on! You can even register your family as a team. Everyone is welcome!
With your help we can provide a better life and a brighter future for Canadians living with Parkinson’s today. A world without Parkinson’s tomorrow. For more information on SuperWalk and to register or sponsor a walker please visit www.parkinsonsuperwalk.ca or call1.800.565.3000.
