Tim Hague

Winner of The Amazing Race Canada | Parkinson's Activist

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.

A registered nurse, Tim is active in the promotion of healthy, balanced lifestyles, and deeply involved in the promotion of Parkinson’s issues and building awareness around Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease working closely with groups such as the Parkinson Society and the Movement Disorder Clinic.


Parkinson's & Perseverance: The Amazing Race

Drawing on his experience as the winner of the inaugural season of The Amazing Race Canada, Tim weaves a story of failure and success that moves his audience. You will relive the magic of television and be lost in the wonder of storytelling as Tim recounts his adventures from The Race.

Tim takes his audience on a very personal journey through his diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease at the early age of 46. You will experience the sense of loss and fear that comes from this diagnosis but more importantly the hope and the determination to persevere.

Your team will be left empowered to do more than they ever thought they could. They will come away with a truer sense of what real strength and courage is. They will have a better understanding of how to face life’s challenges and succeed.
