100,000 Canadians living with Parkinson's, 100,000 reasons to say thank you!

Celebrating you on National Philanthropy Day

Posted: · Last updated:

Today, on National Philanthropy Day, we are recognizing and celebrating every member of our Parkinson’s community and what you make possible through your generosity. As a caring community member, you help move promising Parkinson’s research forward. You ensure people across Canada have access to trusted information, services and programs through Parkinson Canada. And in those inevitable low moments that come with a Parkinson’s diagnosis, you are a reminder that they are not alone.

Your impact is felt across the country, by the 30 people who receive a Parkinson’s diagnosis today, the more than 100,000 Canadians living with Parkinson’s right now, and the thousands of lives they touch.

You may not directly see the enormous impact of your contributions on people with Parkinson’s, their families, care partners, clinicians, researchers, and communities. Yet, the positive change you ignite for these individuals is life-changing. Your support helps us all get closer to discovering what is still possible with Parkinson’s.

Thank you for being part of our Parkinson Canada family,
