PARKINSON SOCIETY BRITISH COLUMBIA
Parkinson Society British Columbia provides vital support to the Parkinson’s community through educational programs, advocacy, public awareness and community outreach. The Society receives no government funding and relies entirely on the generosity of individual donors, members, corporations, foundations and the dedicated efforts of volunteers.
Parkinson SuperWalk is the single most important provincial and national awareness and fundraising event for Parkinson Society British Columbia (PSBC). This event raises money for research and support services through individual pledges and corporate sponsorships. Proceeds from SuperWalk will benefit approximately 13,000 individuals and their families who live with Parkinson’s in BC.
