Parkinson SuperWalk 2013
As part of the National Parkinson SuperWalks taking place across Canada, local organizers received great support at the kick-off of the Vaughan event held at Vaughan City Hall recently. Featuring the National Anthem as sung by Francesco Mazza and Opening Ceremonies hosted by Mayor Bevilacqua and Members of Council, participants enjoyed a coffee before beginning the approximately 3km trek. A light lunch was served on their return and it was great to see entire families out enjoying both the day and the walk. Organizers explained the SuperWalks are held across Canada to help raise awareness of, and fund research into, Parkinson’s Disease and estimated this walk alone raised about $35,000! Congratulations to all who took part!
