Carol Glospie

My sister Dorothy Downes died last week from the effects of parkinson's. My sister was so Brave. She never complained and suffered so much the last month especially. Thank God, she lived with her son and her daughter was there constantly. I saw her so much during this time and loved her and helped take care of here. It is hard to believe she is gone. She fought so hard; and did not want to leave us until we all said you no longer have to suffer. We don;t want to lose you, Dottie, but it was selfish to let you suffer. You are peace now. She is our last sister and now it is just myself and my brother.

I'm paying tribute to my mum, diagnosed about 10 years ago. She gets up every day in a positive frame of mind, and if her Parkinson's is particularly challenging that day, she soldiers on regardless. Parkinson's doesn't stop her from being a great mum and a great nan!

Every day, this community's resilience and strength inspire me and I am immensely thankful for the opportunity to contribute to this meaningful campaign.

Gerarda Posterino

My challenge if for my late husband Michael. He had shy drager or multiple systems atrophy which is a Parkinsonism. He had been a runner, a hard worker, he loved to dance and his food, loved life but most of all he loved his boys. He died too young at the age of 58. He had the disease for 6 years and it progressed very quickly taking all of life's joys away. My greatest wish is the he could of met his grandchildren and they have been robbed of a great grandfather too. Im doing the challenge for him, trying to do the things that he missed out on, and to raise money for needed knowledge.

Remembering my Father (pictured) and his Mother who both had Parkinson's for many years, both diagnosed around the same age as myself and inspired to stay active and support Fight Parkinsons's in the hope that when my own children reach the same age there will be better knowledge and understanding towards treating this thing and maybe even a preventative treatment or even a cure.

My beautiful Dad who lost his fight only a couple of months ago - a true Parkinson's Warrior. We used to walk together all the time, and he was the inspiration behind A Walk in the Park Geelong. We know there wouldn't be a cure for Parkinson's in his lifetime - now we will fight for a cure so that other families don't have to watch their family members suffer. Love and miss you Poppy x

Jill Price

I'm celebrating my husband Dave along with the spunky people who make up Ashwood Parkinsong group- who prove that life can be lived well with Parkinson's; plus their carers and families who show that love can last the distance. Lots of inspiration there and wanting to support Fight Parkinson's in all they do for us all.

Melissa King

During the month of October I am paying tribute to my dad, Don. Dad loved his gardening and going for walks during spring and summer. My goal is to either walk or garden every day.

Dad lives with PSP (Progressive supranuclear palsy)- The condition leads to symptoms including loss of balance, slowing of movement, difficulty moving the eyes, and cognitive impairment. No cure for PSP is known, and management is primarily supportive. There is currently NO cure for PSP. I'm walking to make people aware of this disease which, is related to Parkinson's.
