Vancouver, B.C. - The Vancouver Basketball community includes players, coaches, fans and of course parents. For Doug and Colin Plumb, who have played / coached / impacted all levels of the sport in the Lower Mainland, their father Norm, has been in their corner every step of the way. Norm himself is an active member in the community himself leading a number of local projects from behind the scenes - including the new hoop installation at Kits Beach and most recently leading the ENTIRE Nash Family Court Refurbishment at the PNE. Anyone who knows Norm also knows his heart, care and love.
Norm has been battling Parkinson’s head on, including being an active member at Rock Steady Boxing - where he boxes three times a week. For Norm, and the numerous other participants this has had an profound impact on his quality of life.
Rock Steady Boxing has recently moved to a new facility and is looking for donations to help fund the newly renovated space. You can help by supporting their upcoming event Push Ups for Parkinson’s benefitting the Parkinson’s Wellness Centre. Here’s how:
1. Commit to joining @rocksteady person starting a Noon sharp on Sunday Oct 21 . Set a goal of how many push ups you will attempt to do over a 30 minute time period (and have people sponsor and donate to you based on your achieved results example if your goal is 100 push up and someone sponsor you for 20 cents a push up you would collect $20 from them and summit it to the center when collected .
2. Donate directly to Norm’s Go Fund Me Page.
