Welcome to My Personal Page
Thanks for visiting my Personal Page!
WOW! I began this fundraising Walk The Block, to raise funds for our regional Parkinson's Society because I have been so impressed by their webinars, by their conferences, by the speakers who are almost always local, by the newsletters and by the friendly staff at the office (I thank Lisa Nixon and Kelly Rivard who are so welcoming). To me, the Parkinson Society of Southwestern Ontario IS a place for people living with Parkinson’s to turn to – a place like Home. The Parkinson Society Southwestern Ontario provides programs, services, advocacy and research initiatives to build and spread awareness, care and support for Parkinson’s. They are Home for everyone living with Parkinson’s Disease in Southwestern Ontario.
When I first registered for the walk, I thought a reasonable goal would be to try to raise $500., but I felt strongly about the people I meet each month in the support group and I said "No, I have to do more", so I bumped my goal to $1000. And my wonderful support group of Guelph and Wellington County came through. Not only did the donations crash through $1000. and then hit $1500...more donations are still arriving and may put the final tally at more than $2000. I have been tearful with gratitude to all who donated at such a difficult time as this when money may be more tight.. But the PSSWO needed us more than ever.
So, thank you! To my PD support group and their friends, thank you. That was the best money you spent this Fall!
