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.
