WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
THE BACK STORY. WELCOME!
DEFINITION OF U-TURN
The name is taken from the founder, Tim Hague Sr and his son, Tim Hague Jr‘s experience in winning The Amazing Race Canada. During the show, competitors are given the opportunity to u-turn other racers with the intent of either slowing them down or eliminating them from the race. At U-Turn Parkinson’s it is our desire to slow the disease and ultimately eliminate it from life.
HOW WE HELP.
U-Turn Parkinson’s is unique in the Parkinson’s community in Canada . We empower people living with Parkinson’s in their pursuit of wellness. We are committed to supporting them through a holistic approach. We see wellness as an active process through which people become aware of, and make choices toward a more successful existence.
We aim to inspire, inform and provide the tools needed to improve one’s quality of life.
U-Turn Parkinson’s was founded in 2016 by Tim Hague Sr. who along with his son Tim Hague Jr. won the inaugural season of The Amazing Race Canada. Tim Sr. ran and won the race after having been diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2011 at the age of 46. Today Tim Sr. is an internationally sought-after speaker and Parkinson’s advocate.
U-Turn Parkinson’s is a Canadian charity committed to helping individuals live their best in spite of Parkinson’s. We rely solely on the donations from individuals, foundations and corporations to fund our mission.
