Amazing Race Canada winner Hague to speak on dealing with Parkinson's Disease

  • Print

One of Canada's newest celebrities is appearing at the city’s best known rehab fitness gym later this morning.

Tim Hague Sr., won The Amazing Race Canada along with his son, Tim Hague Jr., and he’s been talking about his time on the reality TV show and life after winning the $500,000 grand prize.

But at the fitness centre, the focus is firmly on how he can use his newfound celebrity status to inspire others like himself.

Hague, a 48-year-old who was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease three years ago, is expected to take on the mantle of a role model at the Reh-Fit Centre.

Research breakthroughs are being rolled into a new program at the Reh-Fit Centre to help middle-aged people with Parkinson's maintain their lives for as long as possible.

In interviews since he and his son landed their Amazing Race win, Hague’s talked about how he didn’t let Parkinson’s didn't let get in the way of the made-for-TV contest, which criss-crossed the country and culminated with Monday's broadcast.

"It doesn’t mean you can’t still compete or have to go quietly into the night," he said.
