Parkinson’s Society Re-invents an Annual Fundraiser

BRANTFORD – A local charity’s annual fundraising campaign ‘WALK-IT for Parkinson’s’ has become ‘WALK THE BLOCK for Parkinson’s’ in 2020.


Jessica Halls, Manager of Fund Development for the Parkinson Society of Southwestern Ontario, says the needs of people living with Parkinson’s have not disappeared during the pandemic, so the organization has re-invented its largest fundraising event of the year.

Halls explains, ‘WALK THE BLOCK for Parkinson’s’ allows for fundraising and connecting while continuing to practice physical distancing.

The event takes place on the weekend of September 12th and 13th. The organization is aiming to raise $467,000.
