Parkinson SuperWalk

Picture 1611Here at Lookout Ridge, our community is a huge supporter of Parkinson Society Canada. Every year, we come together to help raise money for the Parkinson SuperWalk. This event not only helps us contribute to a good cause, but it helps our residents and staff to come together as a family to provide support to those affected by Parkinson’s.

Parkinson SuperWalk is the largest national fundraising event for Parkinson Society Canada (PSC) and its regional partners. Approximately 14,000 participants from coast-to-coast organize and take part in Parkinson SuperWalk.
