Dozens of people came out in support of the Parkinson Society this morning and to take part in the SuperWalk.
Organizer Edith Elliott said she was thrilled with the turnout.
"The turnout is phenomenal. There are way more people than we expected, which is great. We ran out of T-shirts, which is also great," Elliott said.
"It's a beautiful day, there's a good variety of adults, children, and dogs, and a good selection of people who want to walk long and those who want to walk short," she added.
"Pitt Meadows has bent over backwards to help us out, they let us use this beautiful square and we are grateful for that," Elliott said.
Even Mayor Deb Walters and her husband Len donned blue SuperWalk shirts as they walked one of the three routes. The routes being 2.5 kilometres, 1.5 kilometres, or laps around Spirit Square.
Last year's walk raised $3,000 but online donations this year were already ahead of that before the Saturday morning walk.
Money from the SuperWalk goes to research, education, and programs organized by the Parkinson Society.
The Parkinson Society of B.C. facilitates two support groups in Maple Ridge.
More than 11,000 people in B.C. are affected by Parkinson's disease - this number is 100,000 in Canada.
