What is the Parkinson's 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.
