The fundraising drive has begun for the "Hike for Hank" Parkinson SuperWalk team! Brad Richert | Macdonald Realty 1st Pioneer will be at the Surrey Walk on September 9th & will contribute a portion of every firm sale between now and September 1, 2012.

Additionally, Henry Block will match dollar for dollar every contribution to our team. To find out more and/or to donate, please go to - donations of $20 or more will automatically be issued a tax receipt.

From my "Personal Story"

This September I will be joining 14,000 Canadians who are taking part in the annual Parkinson SuperWalk in support of over 100,000 Canadians with Parkinson's.

This is an event very close to my heart. My Opa, who has supported me in everyway - relationally, emotionally, financially, and above all, spiritually, was diagnosed with Parkinsons over 10 years ago. I want to do my part to give back, in even this very small way, to the man who has been an inspiration to so many and a foundational pillar of our family.


In addition to my commitment to raise funds of the Parksinson Society of Canada, I will donate a portion of every home sale between July 1, 2012 and September 1, 2012.


Parkinson SuperWalk is Parkinson Society Canada's national, once a year event to raise funds for research into the causes of Parkinson's, better treatments and one day, a cure. Together we raise funds for education and support services, not only for people with Parkinson's, but for their caregivers and family members too. When you walk with me or sponsor me, you help us get closer to this year's goal of $3 million. Every dollar means new hope. Thank you!
