A Walk in the Park 2022: I'll be Stepping Out for Parkinson's
I'm strutting my stuff in the 2022 A Walk in the Park for Fight Parkinson's. It's on Sunday 27 March and I'd really welcome your support.
You can join me on the day by becoming part of team MOVERS, SHAKERS & SHUFFLERS as a participant, crew member and donor/sponsor.
Your donation will help those living with Parkinson's get the valuable support they need to live a full life.
I'd never considered myself a likely candidate for PD (or for the Big C, either, for that matter). It was always someone else. Then it was my turn to hear the words no one wants to hear: "You've got ... . That was December 2016.
Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological condition that affects people from all walks of life. It's quite common: approximately 100,000 Australians live with Parkinson’s, including over 27,000 Victorians.
Like all of us, I know life's destination. Unlike many of you, the road map of how I'm going to get there has a bit more detail.
Along the way and as "things" progress, I'm going to need support. Your donation will help me, or someone else you know with the shakes, and others in greater need, to get that support.
Thanks for considering, thanks for committing.

Living with Parkinson'sSaturday 26th Mar
Parkinson’s Disease is much more than a tremor, a shuffling gait, or body rigidity. PD is a progressive neurological disorder with many common non-motor symptoms that manifest themselves differently between individuals. There’s no cure.
Parkinson’s People (we’re not sufferers) don’t fight the condition, they live with it. Living with PD is about managing symptoms to achieve the best possible quality of life. Drugs don’t rebuild brain cells, nor do they restore the ability to distinguish between Grange Hermitage and Wynn’s cask red.
Living with PD means acknowledging that Parkinson’s is a life sentence, not a death sentence.
Parkinson’s People and their families can’t do it on their own. Fight Parkinson’s provides the ongoing support that Parkinson’s People and their families need on what can be a long and challenging journey.
From Dan, and me, and all the other Parkinson’s People, thank you for donating.Share
