Superwalk in Chilliwack will raise money for those with Parkinson’s disease

A fundraiser walk to support Parkinson Society BC is coming up in the Fraser Valley.

The annual Parkinson Superwalk is set for Saturday, Sept. 9 at the Landing Sports Centre in Chilliwack. It is the only in-person Superwalk in the Eastern Fraser Valley area.

Organizers are calling it the “largest and most important fundraiser” for Parkinson Society BC. It helps provide the programs, support services, educational resources, and advocacy that people with Parkinson’s, and their loved ones, rely on.

On Sept. 9, people can take part in one of three modest routes that are for people of all abilities and range from half a kilometre to one kilometre.

On-site registration begins at 9 a.m. with the Superwalk starting at 10 a.m.

People are asked to bring their own water bottles to fill and dress for the weather.

There is also a virtual walk in Abbotsford on Sunday, Sept. 10.

There are approximately 15,000 people in British Columbia living with Parkinson’s, and more than 100,000 across Canada.
