‘Unity Walk’ is Parkinson’s NSW’s largest fund raising event. Parkinson’s NSW is dedicated to improving the lives of people with Parkinson’s disease.
My thanks to Ros, Rose and Vanessa from Daughterly Care’s Head Office at Narrabeen who joined Verlie and I to complete the Unity Walk in honour of our clients with Parkinson’s disease, and raise funds and awareness of Parkinson’s NSW.
It was a great day with thousands attending. The weather was superb and the kids loved the petting zoo. The market stalls, kids slide and face painting added to the community spirit and fun of the entire day.
Parkinson’s is such a wide spread disease.
Did you know that every hour of every day someone is diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease and 20% are of working age (15 to 64)? 80,000 Australians are affected by Parkinson’s.
Parkinson’s is a chronic, progressive and lifelong neurological condition, for which there is no cure. It is a condition that affects the motor nervous system and alters co-ordination and movement. It also has a range of non-motor symptoms including depression, pain and problems with sleep.
Parkinson’s affects people in different ways and no two people will have exactly the same experience with Parkinson’s.
Having experienced such an enjoyable day, next year we’ll be inviting our Caregivers and clients as well as family to join us to raise money for a great cause. To visit the Parkinson’s Australia website click HERE
