Cochranites flocked to Mitford Park Sunday afternoon for the 11th-annual Parkinson's Step 'n Stride.

The fundraising event took place in nine different communities throughout the province with the goal of collecting donations to provide various services and programs for those with Parkinson's disease and Parkinson's Plus Syndromes.

Cochrane came into the 2023 edition with a goal of raising $10,000. 

Sunday afternoon saw the number climb to over $19,000 raised in the community!

 Albertans collected $275,706 across all events as of Monday afternoon.

Accounting for more than 50 per cent of the Parkinson Association of Alberta's annual fundraising total, Step 'n Stride has become a milestone event for the organization.

Donations are still being accepted until October 16, 2023. Go HERE for more details.
