A special thank you

Congratulations to everyone who walked 27 times over 27 days in October – we made it!!

A special thanks to everyone involved in the campaign. Over 800 fundraisers raised over $525,000 to support our work in raising awareness for education, support services and research. Such a fantastic effort.

Don’t forget - fundraising is still open for another 4 weeks for those who still want to support your amazing efforts.

I am very happy to announce the Victorian Government confirmed this week they will be providing a one-off donation of $150,000 to Parkinson’s Victoria as part of our 27forParkinson’s fundraising effort. They commended the important work of Parkinson’s Victoria in raising community awareness, in advocating for research and in providing vital information and support for services for Victorians living with Parkinson’s and their families.

This donation, and the phenomenal efforts of John Eren, who bravely disclosed his diagnosis and shared his story with the wider Victorian community throughout the 27forParkinson’s campaign – reinforces to people they are not alone. They will be supported, educated and empowered to enhance their quality of life at every step of their own journey. We thank John for his incredible leadership and commitment to the Parkinson’s community.
