Why Walk

There are many reasons why people want to get involved in A Walk in the Park Geelong.

A community can walk together with people living with Parkinson’s to show their support and remind them that they’re not alone.  

Some walk in memory of people they have lost.

Groups of people show their love by dressing up in bright costumes, t-shirts and signs with positive messages that encourage others to keep fighting.

Some people walk because in some way their life has been touched by Parkinson’s and they want to show their support.


Whatever your reason, show your support and take A Walk in the Park in Geelong on Sunday 8 September 2019.

“I’ve never been on the Walk before. Is it for me?”
It’s for everyone. People with Parkinson’s, people they know and love, people walking in honour of someone and those who just want to be part of something bigger than themselves.

“I usually wait for the weather report.”
A Walk in the Park Geelong will go ahead as long as it is safe to do so! So join us for the biggest community event supporting people living with Parkinson’s in the region. Just make sure you watch the weather the night before or check in the morning and dress appropriately.  If you follow the A Walk in the Park Geelong Facebook page, you can ensure you are receiving the most up to date information

“I’m finding it tricky to register.” 
Registering is easy – click here to do it online or give us a call on 0425 772 489 or email geelongwalkparkinsons@gmail.com to organise a registration form

“I’m not good with computers, so I normally just register in person on the day.”
If you don’t want to register online, we have paper registrations forms, just ring Kirsten on 0425 772 489 and we can get a copy to you, and you can take it to your Geelong Support Group, or bring it on the day with your registration fee.  There will be copies of the form at the Registration Marquee on the day – just seek out one of the volunteers to point you in the right direction.
