Pause 4 Parkinson’s 2021 was a huge year, with a big show of support from our community fundraiser and corporate partners. Together, we raised over $220,000 for Parkinson’s research! There were some fun highlights this year including celebrating our 10-year anniversary and crowning our first ever Shake It Up Pet Ambassador, Lola. Our highest community fundraiser was Lyle Hammerschlag who, together with friends and family, challenged himself for Parkinson’s by swimming laps of Camp Cove. Lyle raised $15k for Pause 4 Parkinson’s. Annie Hicks was another amazing community fundraiser, challenging herself to a 20km walk to support her Dad with Parkinson’s. She raised $10k (with donation still coming in!).
A big thank you everyone who supported Pause 4 Parkinson’s by donating, fundraising or spreading awareness, as well as our corporate sponsors who make the campaign possible. Together, we can make a big difference towards better treatments for Parkinson’s.
