Confederation Beach Park, StoneyCreek, Hamilton to play host to inaugural fundraising event in honour of Capt. Jawed Majeed Qureshy.

Kingston, ON – Saturday May 13th, 2023 – The PSP Society of Canada is happy to support a first ever event of it’s kind. The June 3rd PSP Awareness Walk aims to draw attention to the neurological condition and ultimately, contribute to finding a cure. Organizers invite all to join in their mission of spreading awareness and making a difference in the lives of those affected by PSP.

“I envision a world where PSP is no longer a misdiagnosed, and incurable disorder, but rather one that can be effectively treated or prevented altogether”. Said walk organizer Fariha Qureshy. “Until that day comes, I am committed to raising awareness and advocating for research to find a cure for PSP.”

The PSP Awareness Walk team is a group of volunteers, led by Fariha Qureshy. She put her career on hold to become a full-time caregiver for her father who was diagnosed with PSP. Fariha experienced first hand the challenges presented by the debilitating condition the lack of awareness, especially amongst the medical and care-provider communities. We invite the rare disease and broader community to unite behind Fariha & the walk team on June 3rd, 2023.
