This disease affects over 100,000 Canadians. It belongs to a group of conditions called movement disorders. It is characterized by muscle rigidity, tremor, a slowing of physical movement (bradykinesia) and, in extreme cases, a loss of physical movement (akinesia). This disease is called Parkinson.

This September, hope will drive over 12,000 individuals to participate in 1 of 80 SuperWalks across Canada. You may join us to raise funds for Parkinsons disease research.
