Robert Davidson Walk for PF – Markham
September 16 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm EDT
CPFF founder Robert left a monumental legacy of awareness, information, and hope for the pulmonary fibrosis community in Canada and around the world.
He established the Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation in 2009, less than two years after his own idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis diagnosis and a few months before receiving a double-lung transplant. Robert rallied people living with PF, their loved ones, and medical professionals and was a real sense of hope. He launched the CPFF website providing reliable information about the disease for Canadians living with PF, raised funds for research, and started the support groups that were so desperately needed.
It was with great sadness that CPFF announced the passing of Founder Robert Davidson on May 1, 2019, at 71 years of age.
ABOUT THE ROBERT DAVIDSON WALK FOR PF
Heather Davidson (Robert’s wife) and her family invite you to join them in their walk for PF on September 16, 2023. Together you will tour a small part of the beautiful Toogood Pond Park which is a 33.3-hectare park located in the neighborhood of Unionville, in Markham, Ontario. The pond is home to many Canada geese, ducks, fish, and plants.
Help Heather raise awareness for pulmonary fibrosis throughout the whole month of September by virtually walking in your own neighbourhood and beyond on your own time.
