Ready, Set, Go! The Parkinson’s Journey, the most important fundraising campaign in the province, is back. From now until September 30, you can participate and help us reach our goal of $20,000 in donations for the Montreal-Laval region.
Like every year, we will be thousands of people living with Parkinson’s disease, loved ones, families and everyone who supports the cause, to mobilize in support of the 100,000 Quebecers affected by Parkinson’s disease – 25,000 diagnosed people and their loved ones.
This year’s theme is To move is to live, to give is to hope. The objective of the journey is to invite participants to take part in a walk to promote physical activity and to raise the funds necessary to offer adapted services to people affected by the disease.
For this occasion Parkinson Montreal-Laval will offer a Facebook Live on September 12th for an online warm-up session.

A major campaign for Montreal-Laval
By joining the Parcours Parkinson Montréal-Laval, you allow us to offer local services in our community. Donations are essential to consolidate and develop our services, such as the Info-reference telephone line, post-diagnosis meetings, self-help and support groups, physical activity classes, twinning and many other activities offered throughout the year.
In the Greater Montreal area, 10,000 people are living with the disease and 40,000 people are affected when caregivers are included. Statistics show that the number of cases will double by 2031. This is why we want to redouble our efforts!
