About Us

About Walk to Fight Parkinson's

Walk to Fight Parkinson’s is an opportunity for our community to come together and raise vital funds for people living with Parkinson’s.

Join us on 19 May 2024, Rond Terrace, Commonwealth Park Canberra.

Walk to Fight Parkinson's is a fundraiser for The Hospital Research Foundation Group – Parkinson’s. One step at a time, we can maximise choice, independence, mental health and wellbeing for people impacted by Parkinson’s or other neurological disorders in the ACT.

Every dollar raised from Walk to Fight Parkinson’s will help support the 2000+ people living with Parkinson’s in Canberra
continue to live long and rewarding lives.
