Jan. 19, 2011 – There's no question that Clare Knechtel has done his part in moving the industry forward. Now retired, Knechtel is the former general manager of Hunt Windows and the founder of KML Millwork. He has been named an "Industry Pioneer" by the Canadian Window and Door Manufacturers Association (CWDMA) and was recently awarded the CP. Loewen Award for his outstanding service to the window and door industry.
He is currently helping to battle Parkinson's Disease, and you can help too.
Knechtel encourages everyone to vote daily for the "Parkinson Family Refresh Weekend" Pepsi Challenge.
With enough votes, the Parkinson Society Southwestern Ontario (PSSO) will receive a $100,000 grant to fulfill the organization's dream to hold the first "Parkinson’s Family REFRESH Weekend." This weekend of fun, education, spiritual, physical and wellness workshops and activities will have lasting effects, leaving the whole family feeling rejuvenated and better equipped and capable of living well with Parkinson’s.
Not only will it help the organization to ease the burden of living with Parkinson’s a reality to 100 Parkinson’s Families, it will also increase awareness of Parkinson’s across Canada.
Fortunately, Pepsi Refresh Challenge makes it easy for you to show support through your votes. The project receiving the most votes will receive a $100,000 grant.
