Oyama Zipline hosts Parkinson’s fundraiser

Residents and travellers are invited to participate in Oyama Zipline’s SuperZip fundraiser Sunday

Residents and travellers are invited to participate in Oyama Zipline’s SuperZip fundraiser Sunday.

When you purchase a tour for that day, 100 per cent is donated to charity.

“SuperZip is an extension of the national SuperWalk event for Parkinson’s disease,” said owner Peter Madsen.

“Supporters can get involved in two ways. One method is to book a zipline tour in Oyama for Sept. 8. A second way to participate is to sponsor Team Oyama at onwww.parkinson.bc.ca by registering as a virtual zipliner.”

A diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease in the family initiated this fundraiser.

“Our family and our friend’s family have been affected by Parkinson’s disease so we have partnered with SuperWalk Kelowna”, said Jennifer Madsen.

“Charitable donations tend to be a reflection of personal perspective. Our family has a new appreciation for our health and a new attitude towards giving.”
