Sunday 28 August
A Walk in the Park raises funds for Parkinson’s support and research in South Australia. Your participation in the walk will help Parkinson's SA to continue to deliver support services to people affected by the condition.
Our walk is a little different from other events. A Walk in the Park is not about your fitness level or ability - it's about doing what you can do, not what you can't do. The walk route is wheelchair friendly or if you are not up to it you can stay seated in the main area where tables and chairs are provided. Everyone can participate in some way – even the family dog.
Spend a fun family day with the Parkinson’s community enjoying a bacon and egg breakfast, coffee cart, cupcake stand, massages, balloons, face painting, sausage sizzle lunch and information stalls.
Register now and set up your fundraising page and ask friends, family members, colleagues and businesses to sponsor you.
Sunday 28 August, 11am
This leisurely 4km walk takes place along the banks of the picturesque Yarra River and brings together people from all walks of life – those living with Parkinson’s, their families and carers, and health professionals.

Did you know?
What is 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.
Why fundraise for Parkinson's?
By taking part in A Walk in the Park, you will help raise funds to improve the quality of life for people with Parkinson's, and advance the search for a cure. Together, we can achieve our vision for a world without Parkinson's.
