A Walk in the Park for Parkinson’s, Melbourne Victoria.


25th August 2013

The Unity Walk in the Park for Parkinsons gets bigger and bigger, year by year. The walk by the side of the Yarra  is one of the major fund raising events for Parkinson’s in Victoria. The Premier of Victoria Denis Napthine and his wife were participants. The Premier said he lost his father to Parkinson’s.

The walk was a great success, rounded off with treats for the participants including the four legged ones and great music from the Band ‘Fudge’ at the Federation Square Stage.

Volunteers wait with medallions to be presented to participants who complete the walk.


The first arrivals at the Finish Line, collect their memorial medallions.
