A Walk in a Park

Donate today and support Team Jesaulenko as we take part in A Walk in the Park 2022

The Jesaulenko family is proud to join A Walk in the Park 2022 in support of our Dad Alex, and the wider Parkinson’s community that we’re now part of.

Dad is a courageous – an AFL legend known to so many for the 1970 Grand Final mark that became a catch-cry for taking a ‘specky’- Jes-au-lenko…..you beauty!

But he is also private and this fight is one he doesn’t wish to speak about publicly.

Instead, our family will be joined by a group of Dad’s devoted mates as we show him how much he means to us by walking on Sunday 27 March from Federation Square.

Dad was only diagnosed with Parkinson’s in December, so this is a journey that we are going to learn and walk together.

Our main hope is that Dad’s future is the best that it can be – and you can help contribute to that by supporting Fight Parkinson’s and A Walk in the Park.

So please be part of Team Jesaulenko and donate today and show Dad and all the Australians living with Parkinson’s that they are all legends with a supportive team around them!

Thanks

Kate and Sally

As kids we all wanted to be Jezza and fly to take ‘Jezza’s’. 25 on my back as a kid and privileged to have met the great man for a fleeting conversation in a lift. A true gentleman. Keep fighting Jezza, we’re right behind you!

As a 10 year old in 1970, I showed my appreciation for Alex by constantly wearing a Carlton jumper with ‘25’ on the back. It’s great to be able to do something more tangible, all these years later. Still kicking goals, Alex.

I am a Pies supporter, but your dad gave us footy fans so many fabulous memories during his career. Unfortunately for us poor Collingwood followers, many of his great performances were against us in finals. Good luck with your fundraising and I wish your Dad well.

Parkinson's is a bummer and we are pleased to have people willing to champion our cause. Public knowledge is limited and we need them to know that every effort is exhausting, that conversations are hard work and we will cry if you look at us. But we still have love to give and we find joy in little things. So let's do what we can and fight Parkinson's together.

Had the pleasure of meeting your dad while he was coaching Coburg in the VFL. I was writing footy for the local paper the Coburg Courier. Might have been a letdown coaching such battlers but it provided this long-time Carlton follower with the prized opportunity of meeting a legend. He also signed a copy of a photo of the famous 1970 mark- an original print taken by Truth photographer Alan Funnell. I got it from a friend of mum's who worked at Truth. Talking of my late mum she absolutely loved your dad and would hope he would be okay.
