Parkinson Walk

Dear Brother and Sisters,

Under sunny skies my family and I participated in our 3rd walk for Parkinson Research. We raised awesome $9,055.00 this year. My daughter's employer matched her contributions of $500.00 to push us to the nine thousand mark.

Garvin and I want to thank all of you that so generously opened your wallet and your heart for this cause. Not only was the fund-raising a success but my yearly check-up went very well. With my new bikrham yoga exercise program and working with a physo I have managed to keep the disease at bay. The specialist was so impressed that he said if it was the first time he had seen me he would not be able to conclusively diagnose me with Parkinson. It was the first positive news Garvin and I have received regarding my health in 6 years. I can't tell you how good it feels to know I can positively influence my health through exercise and maintaining a positive attitude, and that is where all my brothers and sisters in Cupe come in, your support enables me to keep a positive outlook and your contributions will ensure there will be a cure in my life time.

With love and solidarity

Maria Wahl
