Parkinson's Journey,

Montréal, Québec, Canada Montréal, Québec, Canada

  • About the event


    In the last decade, numerous researches have shown that physical activity is a complementary therapeutic approach to medication to alleviate many symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, as well as having a positive effect on quality of life.

    For people living with Parkinson’s disease, symptoms may be a hindrance to motivation. However since inactivity may accelerate both physical and cognitive decline, it is crucial that they adopt an active lifestyle in order to help maintain their autonomy.


    Parkinson’s Journey is the largest annual fundraising event for Parkinson’s disease in Quebec. Thousands of people participate in this event and take on the challenge of walking and exercising together in order to support people living with Parkinson’s disease.

    During this event, a global goal is to reach 8,000 km of physical activities (walk, run, etc.). Consequently, each participant must record the distance achieved with the organizers and Parkinson Québec will compile the total.

    Several regions of Quebec offer a family circuit and an alternative challenge. You're up for a challenge? 

    Why should you sponsor?

    Parkinson’s Journey is a fundraising event that helps the Montreal-Laval office and organisation to offer services to the Parkinson's community and to support research. Show your support by sponsoring a good cause!

    I'm the communication specialist at Parkinson Montreal-Laval and my goal is to help this non lucrative organisation to gain visibility and reach a bigger public because the more we are known, the more we can help people living with Parkinson and their caregivers.
