A Walk in a Park

Support us as we take part in A Walk in the Park 2022

We are excited to join Team Jesaulenko in the 2022 A Walk in the Park for Fight Parkinson's. The event is taking place at Federation Square on Sunday March 27th and we would love your support. 

As well as for Carlton great, Alex Jesaulenko, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's less than three months ago, we are doing this in memory of Carolyn's dear Godfather & Uncle, Blue Leno, who passed away with Parkinson's several years ago. If you are able and feel inclined, please donate today to help all those living with Parkinson's get the valuable support they need to live a full life.

Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological condition that affects people from all walks of life. It is quite common, with approximately 100,000 Australians, including over 27,000 Victorians living with Parkinson’s.

Over $1,000 raised - we more than doubled our target!

Tuesday 29th Mar
In Melbourne's beautiful sunny weather on Sunday morning we enjoyed getting together with the Parkinson's community to complete the 4km walk from Federation Square along the Yarra River. Thanks to all who donated to our cause: we contributed $1,017 towards Team Jesaulenko's almost $11K total, and an overall tally on the day of around $150,000! I think we'll have to come back again next year to see if we can do even better!

One more sleep!!

Tomorrow's the big day! Our t-shirts are laid out & we're looking forward to joining up with other walkers at Federation Square, with beautiful weather forecast in our favourite city in the world. It's not too late to make a donation to help those with the awful Parkinson's disease - we'd really love to double our original $500 target! We're so close!!

Blue is our inspiration....

Blue Leno, Carolyn's uncle & Godfather, is the man who inspired us to take part in this fundraising walk. In these photos you can clearly see his cheeky grin and twinkly eyes - Blue was one of the happiest people we knew. 
We're now 3/4 of the way to doubling our original fundraising target - with only one week go, can you possibly help us achieve even more? All donations are fully tax deductible!

We've reached our target, but would love to double it!

Wednesday 9th Mar
We've already surpassed our original $500 target. How good would it be to double it?!  All donations are fully tax deductible and would be gratefully received.  :-)
