What is SuperWalk?

Find a Walk 

Join our movement of more than 80 communities and 10,000 participants across Canada.

Parkinson Canada SuperWalk takes place each September. Across the country, walkers, donors and volunteers band together to show one another they are not alone in standing up to Parkinson’s.

Since 1990, walkers have raised more than $38 Million (including $2.35 Million in 2018) to support a better life today for Canadians living with Parkinson’s and a world without Parkinson’s tomorrow.
