Support me as I stay active for 27 days to support those living with Parkinson's! 

I'm taking part in the 27ForParkinson's 'Be Active' Challenge to help raise funds for people living with Parkinson's - a progressive neurological condition that affects people from all walks of life.

For 27 days I will be staying active whether it be walking, running or just moving my body on behalf of the Parkinson's Community.

Will you help me make a difference? Every dollar raised has a lasting impact, so please make a donation to support my challenge.

One week down, three to go!

Friday 8th Oct
It's been one week of walking an average of 5km, no chocolate and no alcohol.   The walking has been great.  I've had to schedule it into my workday so that I don't end up heading out late at night.  This has been both a good and bad thing as twice this week I've miscalculated and run in the door with 2 mins to spare before a call.  Or in 1 case, did a call in the carpark at the beach.  I'm pleased to say, I'm actually averaging 6km a day at the moment.
The chocolate and alcohol hasn't been too big of a deal.  Although last weekend I caught myself thinking how nice a gin would be in the afternoon.  And making brownies as a gift for some friends was interesting when there were some crumbs left after I cut it up and I had to catch myself before I ate them!
This week I have been lucky to walk with Tim, Trilby, Kim, Luke, Nicole and Zoe.  I have experience beautiful calm sunrises and blustery cold days. I have been hailed on and sweated from the heat.  Love Melbourne!  

Only a few days to go

Tuesday 28th Sep
With only a few days to go until I start 27 for Parkinson's for this year, I'm overwhelmed with the support so far.  Clearly people want to see me go off the booze as well as get active!  Still a few hundred dollars to go until I have to give up the chocolate as well!  

I'd love your support to help raise funds to research Parkinsons

Friday 3rd Sep
Parkinsons has entered our life pretty abruptly in the last couple of years with family members and friends being diagnosed with it.  I did 27 for Parkinsons last year during October and learnt so much about this debilitating disease through the process.
I'm doing it again this year and decided to up the ante.
My plan is to try to average 5km a day throughout the challenge.  That's upping my daily walk average from what I do now. But, if I can raise $1000 before the start of the challenge, I will also give up alcohol for the 27 days.  If I can raise $2000, I will give up alcohol AND chocolate.  
If you could spare some change and would like to sponsor me, I would really appreciate it.
