For many years now, our Club has been involved with Parkinson's Australia with their 'Walk in the Park" annual fundraising event.  The event is normally held in Federation Square, encouraging more than 3000 people to come together in a show of support, unity, fun and encouragement, while helping to raise funds.
Currently, approximately 27,000 Victorians are living with Parkinson's disease.  Presently, there is no cure nor do we know the cause of this degenerative neurological disease.  Obviously, due to COVID-19, the event could not be held this year.  Instead, Parkinson's Australia created 27forParkinson's, a simple concept of walking 27 times over 27 days, which was held during the month of October.
We decided to postpone our participation due to it coinciding with the "End Polio" event.  However, for the month of November, the Community Services team would like you to join us by supporting our 27for Parkinson's event.

Our team, Chris, Helena, Michael, Alex and Lyn have registered with Parkinson's Australia under the name the “Glenferrie Walkers”.  We intend to walk 27 times over 27 days, commencing 2nd November and concluding on the 30th November.
Please support and encourage  us by donating to the attached link.  Glenferrie Walkers.
