My Activity Tracking


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

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

With over 57,000 people in Victoria and 219,000 Nationally living with Parkinson's, your donation will make a difference to so many people.

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.  The plan in my case is at least 20 full pushups, sit ups and squats every day and a 20km bike ride every other day.

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