Parkinson Canada SuperWalk taking place September 8th

I have Parkinson’s and I have accepted it,” said Murray McBain who raised more than $3,000 in last year’s event, walking with family members including two grandchildren. McBain (r) spars with Boxing Champ Otis Grant for a boxing demo at last year’s SuperWalk.

To date, the international Parkinson Canada SuperWalk initiative has raised almost $40 million for research into finding a cure and once again, the West Island walk will take place at John Abbott College Sunday, September 8th.

“Parkinson SuperWalk is a family outing with a special purpose,” said organizer Lisa Mintz.

“It is a great opportunity for people with Parkinson’s to meet others living with the disease, talk with their families, and build a network,” said Mintz.

The funds raised during the walk taking place in Sainte Anne-de-Bellevue , that takes place in over 80 countries, “ 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.”

Participants can take part in either the 1.5 or 4.5 km course by walking, strolling or running.

“I have Parkinson’s and I have accepted it,” said Murray McBain who raised more than $3,000 in last year’s event, walking with family members including two grandchildren.

“I walk to raise money to help find a cure but also because I appreciate the support that Parkinson Canada gives me to live with my disease. I don’t know what I would do without their help,” McBain.

I am 65 years old, I was diagnosed of Parkinsons disease at the age of 59. I had severe calf pain, muscle pain, slurred speech, frequent falls, loss of balance, difficulty getting up from sitting position. I was placed on Sinemet 3 times daily, it helped me but not very much. My neurologist advised me to try natural treatments and introduced me to Rich Herbal Garden Parkinsons Disease Herbal formula, I read alot of positive reviews from other patients who used the treatment and i immediately started on the treatment. I had great improvement and relief with this treatment, total decline of symptoms. Great improvement with speech, co-ordination, balance, muscle, mood etc, I gained back my life with this treatment and can never be thankful enough. Visit Rich Herbal Garden official website ww w.
