Invermere’s SuperWalk

Invermere’s SuperWalk raises substantial cash

The Parkinson Society of British Columbia held its 4th annual SuperWalk.

The Parkinson Society of British Columbia held its 4th annual SuperWalk in early September and could not be happier with the support and enthusiasm of all who joined in.

What is the SuperWalk? The Parkinson SuperWalk is one of Canada’s largest fundraising events and helps more than 100,000 people throughout Canada living with Parkinson’s disease. There are more than 110 communities across Canada that take part in the fundraiser, including Invermere. Teams came decked out in costumes — or wearing the organization’s SuperWalk shirts — and walked together to help find a cure.

Participants from all walks of life showed up to support the cause in their communities, and the effort was much appreciated.

The generosity and commitment for the fundraiser has not gone unnoticed and the Parkinson Society BC would like to say thanks to everyone who has supported the cause and got involved.

They rang in the donations raised as of September 30th and came up with a grand total of $414,000, with $5,261.45 raised in Invermere alone.

But it’s not over quite yet. They will be collecting donations until December 12th, and encourage you to support the cause by clicking the “Donate to a Walker” button on their site or by mailing your cheque(s) to the Parkinson Society BC office.
