Tim Hague Sr. overcame the odds when he went from a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease to — just three years later — becoming the inaugural winner of CTV’s The Amazing Race Canada.
Tim’s message of strength and courage leaves audiences motivated to meet life’s challenges and do more than they ever thought they could. Tim and his son, Tim Hague Jr., put their now-trademark perseverance to work while participating as a duo on The Amazing Race Canada. When the pair finally came out on top in the last competition of the race, they had never before won any stages and in fact had nearly been eliminated from the show twice. Despite the odds, “The Tims” as viewers affectionately dubbed them, kept their focus on overcoming one obstacle at a time to take the championship, a message of hope that Tim draws on in his talks.
As a registered nurse it became evident almost immediately of the need for enhanced Parkinson’s Wellness Programs. Tim Sr. commits a considerable amount of time partnering with the Parkinson Society and a variety of other entities pursuing activities that will help people with Parkinson’s Live Better.
With a message of perseverance in the face of suffering, character development and hope Tim has thrilled small teams to large audiences all across Canada with keynote addresses that are moving and inspiring.
