We know that most people take part in Parkinson SuperWalk, because they, or someone they care about, is living with Parkinson’s disease. The friends, neighbours, and colleagues of walkers, help out by making pledges to those who walk. Walkers and donors all become Everyday Heroes for those living with Parkinson’s, who are inspired by the contributions of people in their communities and the hope for a cure.
In keeping with our Everyday Heroes. Extraordinary Hope theme we’re again offering our Everyday Heroes contest as part of Parkinson SuperWalk. This year, we’re also naming a ‘National Hero.’ The person you nominate has a chance to lead their local walk as our Parkinson SuperWalk National Hero for 2016! We’re excited to bestow this title and honour on one of our Everyday Heroes for the first time this year. Visit the Everyday Hero contest entry page, share the name of your Everyday Hero, and one sentence about why they are your Everyday Hero. Nominate your inspiration today.
As an added incentive to enter the contest, nominators have the chance to win one of four weekly and one grand prize, provided by our contest sponsor Otago RealLifeFood. Entries will be randomly drawn for a weekly prize of three nutritious, chef-prepared, meals for two for a day and a grand prize of an entire week of dinners for two.
Continuing our Everyday Heroes. Extraordinary Hope theme, our national sponsor Burnbrae Farms is offering a $250 gift basket as the prize for the Eggstraordinary Hope contest. You can enter by completing the form found here or liking a contest post on Parkinson SuperWalk or Burnbrae Farms Facebook pages until August 1.
And finally, congratulations to Lorne Collis of Brampton, Ontario, who won a $500 Roots gift card in our Super Friendraiser draw by sending 156 emails requesting support for his Parkinson SuperWalk efforts through the online participant centre.
We’re grateful to each of our sponsors who have made it possible for us to offer these three meaningful opportunities to win. We know that all of our participants have their own Everyday Heroes that motivate them to walk, and to support Parkinson SuperWalk. We look forward to reading about your own Everyday Hero in our contest and to hearing your stories in person this September.
