A Walk in the Park

Parkinson’s WA will hold its biggest fundraiser of the year - A Walk in the Park - on 15 September at Perry Lakes in Floreat.  The event raises crucial funds for our community-based Parkinson’s nurse specialist service, which supports West Australians with the challenging, progressive neurological condition.  As such, we are keen for as many people as possible to join us and having the bridge lit up in unity with our fundraiser and those living with Parkinson’s would hugely promote our Walk which, as a small charity, we would be incredibly grateful for.

Look out for the Matagarup Bridge Lightup this 15 September with our A Walk In The Park Colours.

Support Groups

Half of our Support Groups are in regional areas.

Supporting our Parkinson’s community in regional WA is vitally important to Parkinson’s WA.

We now have 10 regional Support Groups holding meetings each month throughout the year.  These include Mandurah, Bunbury, Busselton, Collie, Margaret River, Lower South West (Manjimup), Albany, Esperance, Narrogin/Darkan and Northam.

These groups are generally run by community members with a close connection to Parkinson’s and offer guest speakers on a range of topics catering to the needs of their members.

If you or someone you know is living in one of these areas and have not yet accessed the local Parkinson’s Support Group, we can provide you with the meeting time and Leader’s contact details.
