Raising funds and spirits

Stratford Gazette

The seventh annual Parkinson Superwalk was held on Saturday at Upper Queen's Park, raising money for programs and services for people with Parkinson's, as well as research to help combat the disease.

The Dunbar family was out in force that day, with 18 family members and three dogs participating. Four generations of Dunbars were walking in the fundraiser, the eldest being Scott's 92-year-old mother. The Dunbars were out in support of Scott, who's been diagnosed with Parkinson's, a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system.

The estimated total raised was $30,000. This puts the total funds raised since the inaugural walk at almost $200,000.

The Parkinson Society of Canada is still accepting donations for this year's fundraiser. Log onto www.parkinsonsociety.ca for more information.
