Walk-It for Parkinson’s
Over the weekend the walking event took place at Rotary Cove for the first time in Goderich
Hosted by Parkinson Society Southwestern Ontario, walkers came together to take part in the 1km-5km walk, joining in the 5, 000, 000 Step Challenge across the region. Parkinson’s is a slow, progressive neurodegenerative disorder, making activities and daily living difficult and a local event such as the walk, has such a positive impact on the Parkinson’s community.
All funds raised goes towards programs and services to support people with Parkinson’s disease within the area. The goal was to reach $405, 000 from fundraising.
Participants of theWalk-It for Parkinson’s event were led through stretching and yoga prior to the walk along the boardwalk.
