Dan Steele, president of the P.E.I. Chapter of Parkinson Canada, led the way for the annual Parkinson SuperWalk in Charlottetown.

This year’s event raised $30,880.

“It’s a way to get to meet people who have family members that have Parkinson’s, and share information about our services,” said Steele.

He explained the money will go to the national organization for advocacy, research, support and education programs.

In addition to the walk, a raffle draw was held for three prizes – $500 worth of grocery gift certificates, a hooked rug and a one-night stay for two people at the West Point Lighthouse Inn.

The Parkinson SuperWalk is a national fundraising event held in communities across Canada.
