Registration for the 2019 edition of Parkinson’s Journey is open!

16 July 2019

Parkinson’s Journey is an event that takes place every year in several cities throughout Quebec during the weekends in September. Thousands of people living with the disease, their families and loved ones take up the challenge of being active together.

The goal? Collectively accumulate 8,000 km across Quebec and raise $200,000 for services and support to those living with Parkinson’s disease and their loved ones.

 

MORE THAN JUST A WALK

Parkinson’s Journey is the largest annual fundraising event for Parkinson’s disease in Quebec. A unifying, cheerful family event where parents, friends and family join forces by participating in the various walks, races and alternative challenges offered in various regions. An opportunity to raise awareness around Parkinson’s and together develop the empowerment of those facing this disease.

In 2019 Parkinson’s Journey takes place in 10 regions throughout  Quebec!

Join the debate on the impact of pesticides on public health

12 July 2019

In September 2019, the government will hold a parliamentary commission to evaluate the impact of pesticides on public health and the environment.

This major societal challenge can only be addressed by politicians, scientists and lobbyists. All of us have a voice that doesn’t only speak every four years, during elections. Our citizen and community action can make a difference in recognizing the causality between pesticide exposure and the development of Parkinson’s disease.

Whether you are affected by the disease, a former farmer, a former pesticide industry worker, a housewife who wants to protect her children or anything else, sign up for our Citizens’ Action Group.

We will contact you during the summer to participate in local political action. You all have a potential impact on your social reality.

Participate and show your support to Parkinson Québec’s mission!

10 June 2019

The ‘Défi Vélo Parkinson Québec’ is a unique cycling event that will benefit the 25,000 Quebecers living with Parkinson’s disease as well as their caregivers. The cyclists will meet next August 24 at Tennis 13 in Laval to then continue their circuit through the beautiful landscapes of the Lower Laurentians. Four circuits are offered to cyclists of all levels: 40km, 60km, 90km, and 150km. Once you have created your page on the event’s website, you will be able to invite family, friends and colleagues to join you. There are tools available on the platform to help you with fundraising.

Participating as a team will allow you to divide your fundraising efforts, as long as the total amount raised corresponds to $500 per cyclist.

Each cyclist will receive an official 2019 edition of the jersey, a value of $80. If you register individually, don’t worry! We will assign you a team that will cycle at the speed and distance you have registered for.

Do not delay! To guarantee your jersey size, you must have registered before June 28th.
