Be part of the excitement – get involved in WALK-IT for Parkinson’s this September!
WALK-IT for Parkinson’s is Parkinson Society Southwestern Ontario’s newest walk to help those living with Parkinson’s in Southwestern Ontario. Bring your family and friends and be part of this exciting event – Every Step Counts!
Effective December 31, 2015, The Parkinson Canada Federation was dissolved, and as a result, Parkinson Society Southwestern Ontario is no longer affiliated with Parkinson Canada. This change means that every dollar raised in Southwestern Ontario will stay in Southwestern Ontario. Funds raised at WALK-IT for Parkinson’s will go to support local services, education, advocacy and research. This event will replace the Parkinson SuperWalk in Southwestern Ontario. With all these changes, it is the perfect time to launch our own new walk.
This September 10th, 11th and 18th our inaugural WALK-IT for Parkinson’s will take place in 13 locations throughout Southwestern Ontario.
Regular physical activity can help slow the progression of Parkinson’s symptoms, so let’s help the Parkinson community in Southwestern Ontario keep active. Join the movement and take the 1,000,000 Step Challenge by participating in WALK-IT for Parkinson’s.
Step 1: Register
Step 2: Raise Funds

Get involved and accept the challenge by registering as a walker, becoming a team captain, joining a team, pledging a walker, volunteering at your local walk or making a donation. Join the movement for physical activity and be a part of WALK-IT for Parkinson’s this September!
