We’re back from Saturday, Sept. 11 to Sunday, Sept. 12 at locations across Alberta!

Flexxaire Parkinson Step ‘n Stride is our largest fundraising event of the year, contributing more than 20% of our annual budget.

This year, you have the choice of joining us to walk together in a safe and open environment or going virtual and walking wherever you are!

Enjoy friendship, games, food and prizes along the 1km, 3km and 5km courses at each location.

Your fundraising efforts contribute to the emotional, social, educational and active support provided by Parkinson Association of Alberta.

What is Step 'n Stride?

This is our largest fundraiser of the year, raising crucial funds to support Albertans impacted by Parkinson disease. In 2019, almost 2,000 walkers took to parks across Alberta to raise awareness and much-needed funding for Parkinson’s!

With your support we raised nearly $380,000 over the past year. Each year you have the opportunity to gather a team and register or donate!

How did Step 'n Stride start?

It was important for us to have a fundraising event that motivated and inspired people with Parkinson’s and their friends and families, as well as an event that provided a consistent and reliable source of revenue for Parkinson Association of Alberta.

Exercise is incredibly important for people with movement disorders, so it came to represent more than just a fundraiser. It became a way for people to get involved and participate in a community of people working hard to live well longer.
