On Sunday, August 27th Parkinson’s SA will be holding its annual Walk In the Park – to support and find a cure for Parkinson’s.
I invite you to join the West Adelaide Football Club Team by registering online and thereby assisting to fund research into finding a cure for this disease. 8000 South Australians are presently living with Parkinson’s. In Australia, on average a new diagnosis is made every 45 minutes. This degenerative neurological condition not only has no cure but Scientists are still unclear on what causes Parkinson’s. There is heavy reliance on fundraising to support Parkinson’s SA and your assistance will be greatly appreciated.
Follow this link to register http://adelaide.parkinsonswalk.com.au/ – don’t forget to sign up as part of the West Adelaide Football Club team and we will see you at Bonython Park on Sunday Morning, August 27th. Let’s all wear red and black to show that we’re all on the same team!
Thank you to WAFC CEO David Grenvold and the WAFC Board for supporting this fundraising and awareness initiative.
Hope to see you there!
Mark Mickan – WAFC Coach”
About the day
The Parkinson’s SA community look forward to A Walk in the Park every year. The day is for friends, familiy and supporters of people living with Parkinson’s to come and show their support. The day also raises much needed donations that ensure that Parkinson’s SA can continue to offer vital support, counselling, seminar, recreational and support group.
When: Sunday 27 August, from 9am-12.30pm (we walk rain, hail or shine)
Where: Bonython Park, near the kiosk. The 2km or 4km walk around the scenic Torrens is mobility-friendly and volunteers are also along the track to assist.
There are also chairs, tables and umbrellas for your comfort and a large marquee area.
Parking: Free parking is available near the picnic area, in the carpark off Port Road, and near the Old Gaol. Some areas are restricted to 4 hours, but that should allow plenty of time to participate in the Walk.
What’s on: Bacon and egg roll BBQ breakfast, coffee stand, facepainting, cupcake stand, massages and a sausage sizzle for lunch.
