Hill family takes part in Parkinson's walk to support one of their own

Jean Hill listens to the music of the Ten O'Clock Band in Victoria Park Sunday, awaiting the return of about 30 members of her family who participated in the Parkinson's SuperWalk. Hill, a Lucknow resident, has Parkinson's Disease. For the past five years, her children, grandchildren and other relatives have come from as far away as Guelph and Seaforth to camp overnight near her home and participate in the walk the next day. "I have a lot of support from my family," says Hill. "They all do the best they can." The Hill family was one of five teams that participated in the ninth annual Kincardine walk this year.
