Shake, Rattle & Stroll for Parkinson’s
The Shake, Rattle & Stroll for Parkinson’s is our biggest fundraising event of the year and raises nearly half of our annual budget. All money raised stays in the province and allows us to directly help the 1,500 people and their families who are living with Parkinson’s in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Community Shake, Rattle & Stroll walks are being held in St. John’s, Corner Brook, Grand Falls-Windsor and Pacquet. More communities may be added as we get closer to this date. If you want to organise one, contact us.
To learn more about this event, visit our Shake, Rattle & Stroll page.

Parkinson’s Relay Team in the TELY10
This summer our members entered a relay team in the historic Tely10 Road Race. Having never been done before, this was a rewarding experience for all participants, and inspiring for those who watched. Our team consisted of people living with Parkinson’s as well as members of their families, and was organized by Board member Amy Lee. The team sported special Parkinson Society Newfoundland and Labrador running shirts which were donated by Board Member Janet Lawlor in memory of her father Walter who passed away earlier this year. Congratulations to all of the members who have taken on this amazing challenge and thanks to everyone who helped make this initiative go smoothly for the participants.

St. John’s Chapter Summer Picnic
Fun and usual mischief occurred at the Annual St. John’s Chapter picnic on this bright, sunny day. It was held at the Sunshine Rotary Park on Thorburn Road at noon, and there was definitely no shortage of barbecue goodies! Also, the Parkinson’s Glee Club Choir provided some quality entertainment. Special thanks to those who came out and helped with this event.
