Welcome to My Personal Page
Thanks for visiting my personal fundraising page! Once again I captain Team Popsy, in memory of the best Dad ever, and as far as I'm concerned, the most decent man I have ever known. It is 5 1/2 years since Dad left us, and every day I think of Mr. Wonderful, and how he was truly wonderful in so many ways. A family man, a community man, and above all, a deeply caring man.
Dad's life was cut short because of Parkinson's. Not cancer, not heart issues, not diabetes. It was the relentless steamroller known as Parkinson's that chipped away at everything he held dear - to walk, to talk, to eat (of course), and to participate in life. Since Dad passed away, new research in exercise, such as boxing, shows promise as a way to reduce the tremors, the balance issues, the breathing, and give them confidence in themselves again. PSSO provides research dollars to discover such exciting initiatives, and we pledge to continue to provide dollars raised for research, support group help, education and much more.
This September I will join over 1,000 walkers taking part in Parkinson Society Southwestern Ontario's WALK-IT for Parkinson’s. Funds raised at WALK-IT for Parkinson's will stay in Southwestern Ontario and go to support services, education, advocacy and research.
Regular physical activity can help slow the progression of Parkinson’s symptoms, so join me in helping the Parkinson’s community in Southwestern Ontario keep active.
Show your support for those affected by Parkinson's by walking with me under Team Popsy or sponsoring me or any team members. For Mr. Wonderful.
Thank you – We’re in this together!
