Parkinson Society rings the bell to open Toronto Stock Exchange

Parkinson Society opened the Toronto Stock Exchange on Wednesday, April 13th, to resounding applause from the 100 guests, donors, volunteers and board members of Parkinson Society Central & Northern Ontario and Parkinson Society Canada. Hosted by Parkinson Society Central & Northern Ontario, the event launched the April Parkinson’s Awareness Month among the corporate sector.

The day kicked off with breakfast and a presentation by Jim Vlahos, Vice President of Sales for Franklin Templeton Investments, who described the challenges of training for and running the Athens Classic Marathon in October 2010, to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson’s in memory of his father-in-law who had Parkinson’s. His wife, Georgina, her mother, Eugenia Macheras and his brother-in-law Terry Macheras were also in attendance.

The event was sponsored by TD Commercial Banking and McLean Budden Limited.
