A Fun Way to Fight Parkinson's

Walk to Fight Parkinson’s is an opportunity for our community to raise vital funds and show support for people living with Parkinson’s and their families in the ACT.

Walk to Fight Parkinson’s is run by The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) Group – Parkinson’s, which has recently merged with Parkinson’s ACT to expand services within the ACT for people with Parkinson’s.

One step at a time, you can walk, run or Nordic walk to maximise choice, independence, mental health and wellbeing for people impacted by Parkinson’s or other neurological disorders.

Why Walk to fight Parkinson's?

There is currently no cure or no way to slow the progression of Parkinson’s. With 1 Australian diagnosed with Parkinson’s every 40 minutes, it’s crucial that we support research, improve services and build awareness around Parkinson’s in our community.

The Hospital Research Foundation Group – Parkinson’s is proud to provide support and information for people living with Parkinson’s and other movement disorders, along with their carers, family, community and health professionals. But we can’t do this without your fundraising efforts.

By joining the Walk to Fight Parkinson’s, you can have an incredible impact on those in the ACT living with Parkinson’s. One step at a time, we can fight for people with Parkinson’s.
