Help us make change for people living with Parkinson's

We are taking part in the 27ForParkinson's Challenge to help raise funds for the 27,000 Australians living with Parkinson's - a progressive neurological condition that affects people from all walks of life.

Dad (Richard) has been diagnosed and living with Parkinson's disease for about 15 years now. In the past few years, Dad's condition has worsened and he has developed Lewy Dementia on top of his Parkinson's.

This hasn't been the easiest of times, particularly for Mum (Christina) and Dad. We want to raise awareness that Parkinson's is a progressive and incurable disease which doesn't just make people 'shake', but can impact all movement, cognitive, memory and speech ability. It is also a gateway into other chronic illnesses, such as Dementia.

Dad, Mum and Em will be challenging themselves to not drink alcohol* or eat any confectionary. They'll also be making sure they get daily movement - be it a long walk for Monty, a workout, etc

Christine, Ben and Euey will also be taking part in the challenge by not only giving up alcohol, but going on a daily walk together as a family. This partners movement and connection  - two vital parts of enjoying life with Parkinson's as much as possible. 

As a whole family, we are committed to learning more about both Parkinson's disease and Dementia - ensuring we are supporting Dad and one another as best as possible.

We thank you for all your support in raising funds and awareness for people with Parkinson's and those who care for them.


* UNLESS, someone donates $50 specifically to give Em the day off - there always has to be a loophole ;)
