This year’s Step ‘n Stride event was one of our most successful ever, with almost 1,000 members of our community coming out across Alberta to demonstrate their support for people living with or loving someone with Parkinson’s. We are once again humbled by the generosity of all our participants and sponsors, and cannot thank you all enough.
Donations for Step ‘n Stride can still be made until Saturday, Oct. 30, and there is still time to fundraise and qualify for one of our four Alberta stay-cation prize packages.
Your fundraising efforts contribute to the emotional, social, educational and active support services 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.
