Parkinson Canada launches a new twist on a traditional event


The 30th Anniversary of the Parkinson Canada SuperWalk will come with a new plan to adjust to the current reality. A collective walk experience in September remains the goal, but the 2020 edition will take the shape of smaller individual, family and neighbourhood walks as the public health context dictates. Supporters can download a Walk in a Box kit to make the most of their day and Parkinson Canada will feature a live, coast to coast, online opening ceremony on Saturday, September 12th, at 11:00 AM.

SuperWalkers of all ages SW 2016

 We will miss hosting the Parkinson community and meeting with our supporters, as we usually do on the beautiful campuses of John Abbott and MacDonald Colleges in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue says Danielle Blain, Regional Director. But participants have shown they can adapt; since March, they took part in our exercise sessions, educational activities and group meetings which shifted online.

Hit hard by COVID 19, health charities need the generosity of their supporters more than ever. Funds raised by the SuperWalk are invested to provide services, education and advocacy for people affected by Parkinson’s and their loved ones and for research into improving treatments and, one day, finding a cure.

Register today at or phone 800-565-3000 to connect to a fun filled, family event with an added benefit.

About Parkinson Canada and Parkinson SuperWalk

Parkinson’s disease affects over 100,000 Canadians, including 25,000 Quebecers, a number expected to double by 2030. This progressive neurological condition induces several motor and non-motor symptoms. Since 1965 Parkinson Canada has been the national voice of Canadians living with Parkinson’s. We invest in research and provide education, advocacy and support services, including programs specific to the province of Quebec. Parkinson Canada SuperWalk is the largest nationwide fundraising event for Parkinson Canada. Approximately 10,000 people in 80 communities organize and take part in this event. The national sponsors for 2020 are Burnbrae Farms, McKesson and Lax-a Day.
