Impact of Support

Last year, thanks to the incredible effort of over 950 participants, we raised over $580,000 to support people living with Parkinson’s.

All funds raised help improve the quality of life for the over 27,000 people living with Parkinson’s. Every day, our multi-disciplinary health team provide information, education, advice and peer support services to improve the life of the Parkinson’s community.

During the 12 month period before and after the campaign, the funds raised enabled us to:

  • Support over 3,000 calls taken by our Health Team
  • Make over 1,000 outbound phone calls to our members ensuring they were supported during these challenging times
  • Deliver over 80 different education sessions plus so much more!

Behind every number above is a person, who have been provided critical support by Parkinson’s Victoria. All of which was made possible by individuals and teams who took part in 27forParkinsons.

With your help, this year we can extend our support to those living with Parkinson’s, their families and carers, peer support groups and health care professionals.

Thanks for everything Parkinson's VIC that you do

my beautiful mum sandra, gained her wings on October 21st after 24 years living with Parkinson’s Disease

Beth Lewis

my beautiful, strong, and brave mum passed away on the 26th October after living with Parkinson’s disease for 24 years. A mother to 8 children and 18 grandchildren, a beloved wife and sister. She lived her life to the fullest, she didn’t let Parkinson’s defeat her and did it her way right to the end ❤️

Stephen Dunn

Remembering my Father, Alan Dunn diagoned at 61. His Mother was never diagnosed but I recall her tremor when she was around 63 so we suspect she had it also, unfortunately have no photo. I recall Mum predicting that there'd probably be a cure by the time I reached his age... Same age as Dad for my diagnosis. Lost Dad in 2007 at the age of 78. And now on a 27 day cycling challenge to help fight this condition that hopefully also leads to better treatments for those in future genarations, and make Mum's prediction a reality for them.

Mandy

To my Hubby, my one true love who has been my constant support throughout it all. Thank you for all you do for me and our family. Your love and dedication to never falters. And to my bestie, my soul sister. What would I do without you! Thank you for always being there and loving me. I know I’m not alone with this 💜

Sonja Braniff

Mum, you inspire me every day. So many obstacles that some days are more challenging for you than others, but you just keep going. And on those days you can’t face them alone, I’m here for you 💞

Lesley Labram

For John our son, who is missed every day

I’m walking for you yogi until you can walk with me

Damien Michael

I celebrate my mum, Veronica Michael, who has Parkinson's and is inspirational every single day through her approach and attitude! Love you so very much Mum! XXX

John Wijsma

I’d like to give thanks to all the carers, wives, husbands, children, parents etc who are affected by Parkinson’s every bit as much as their loved ones. More specifically my wife Claire who has sacrificed so much for the family and I due to my Parkinson’s. She was the driving force in contacting Parkinson’s Victoria for information and our first walk in the Park. Claire is an inspiration to me everyday and I can’t imagine life without her. Cheers to our loved ones who live with Parkinson’s too.

Belinda and Olivia

We are walking together throughout the whole of October thinking of our best mum and our best Nana who is living with Parkinson's.

Sharon

I am doing this for my grandad, Bill. Grandad passed away nearly 4 yrs ago at the spectacular age of 96yrs. He was diagnosed in his early 80's with Parkinson's and never let it beat him. He was an active man who walked everyday when he could and when he couldn't he still went to the shops on his mobility scooter. He grew up on a farm in NSW and settled with his family on Flinders Island after he was discharged from the army at the end of WW2. He and my Nana moved to Tassie when I was a baby and I can't remember my life without him. He was always had time for his grandkids, taking us swimming after school, teaching us to drive, teaching us to play pool and generally being the best Grandad ever. He was a devoted husband and father. He was strong to the end. The photo is of my Grandad, Aunty Chris and two of my boys and me. this was the last time he marched on Anzac day. I proudly marched by his side. In memory of Bill xx

We are walking in honour of our beautiful Dad Frank. Recently diagnosed last year. He makes our family complete

All the family for support no one can do it alone. Go team.

Parkinson’s Warrior Team 2021

Today is Tribute Day. This year the whole family is getting involved as we walk in memory of our beautiful Nan, Mary Agnes Haynes, who was the first Warrior to suffer this terrible disease. We also walk in memory of our darling Mum/Nanna, Rhonda Kennedy, who devoted more than 20 years to the Bendigo Support Group and we now walk for our two very special sisters, Sue and Lyn, who are Warriors Battling this horrible disease. I have included some group pics of family and friends from past Parkies Walks. IN THIS FAMILY, NO-BODY FIGHTS ALONE
