A Walk in the Park Geelong

Sunday, 8 September 2019 - 10:30am to 1:00pm

On Sunday 8 September 2019 Geelong will again host A Walk in the Park and provide an opportunity for people living in Geelong, the Bellarine and the Surf Coast to come together as a strong and vibrant community to raise awareness and vital funds to support those living with Parkinson’s.  

Parkinson’s is a chronic and progressive neurological condition. In Victoria alone, 27,000 people are living with Parkinson’s.

Parkinson’s symptoms result from a progressive degeneration of particular brain cells. This degeneration affects the nervous system and alters co-ordination and movement together with non-motor symptoms such as pain, cognitive change and problems with sleep.

The condition affects people in different ways – no two people will have exactly the same symptoms or experience.
