Everyday I'm shuffling...Support me as I stay active for 27 days to help the fight against Parkinson's Disease.

It has been 21 years since I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and along with many other things, walking is something that has become incredibly hard and effortful. I would give anything in the world to be able to walk without falling or consciously think of each and every step.

That is why I am joining forces with many other to participate in the 27ForParkinson's 'Be Active' Challenge. For 27 days I will be staying active whether it be walking; or should I say shuffling, or just moving my body one way or another. I can’t promise I will be walking kilometres, but I will make a deliberate and intentional effort everyday for the next 27 days.  

I would love your help to raising money for Parkinson’s Victoria to hopefully one day see a cure for this debilitating disease that robs so many people of their quality of life. No amount is too small, it all helps and will give me that extra push I need to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
