Thanks to our major supporters
In 2018 and 2019 Geelong hosted A Walk in the Park and provided an opportunity for people living in Geelong, the Bellarine and the Surf Coast to come together as a strong and vibrant community to raise awareness and vital funds to support those living with Parkinson’s.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and to keep our Parkinson’s community safe, in 2020 we won’t be able to take A Walk in the Park together, however Parkinson’s Victoria have announced a ‘virtual walk’ – 27forParkinson’s. This free and accessible event is for everyone. It’s simple – we want people to get out and move at their own pace and walk 27 times over 27 days in October. The time, place and distance is up to you – it could be walking to the letterbox every day, or walking 2kms or 20kms!
Why 27forParkinson’s? There are 27,000 people in Victoria living with Parkinson’s. We want to acknowledge them and increase awareness of Parkinson’s as well as raise money to support the invaluable work that Parkinson’s Victoria do.
At A Walk in the Park Geelong we want people to know that there is a supportive community to share your journey – we are all in this together and you and your family don’t have to face your Parkinson’s journey alone.
This year you can buy a t-shirt or face mask to show your support while you are out walking.
Free registration opens on 1 September 2020. You can fundraise too – register your own team, or join Team Geelong.Why walk?
In 2018 and 2019 A Walk in the Park Geelong has been held in the picturesque Eastern Park. The 2km walk circuits the Geelong Botanic Gardens.
There are many reasons why people want to get involved in A Walk in the Park Geelong.
Whatever your reason, please show your support and take 27 walks for Parkinson’s in 2020.
Participants can fundraise and also buy t-shirts and face masks – all proceeds from sales are given to Parkinson’s Victoria to support their vital work.
