Why walk?

People take A Walk in the Park for many reasons

Living with Parkinson’s – it’s the one day of the year they can walk proudly with a community of people who care and understand what life with Parkinson’s is like.

Love and support – as a family member or friend, this is the one day of the year they can band together to show they are ‘in this together’.

In memory – many walk in memory, donning emblazoned t-shirts and balloons, memories and smiles, encouraging others to keep fighting.

United in support – some are part of the wider community touched by Parkinson’s in a tangible way and know that we all need to unite together in support of the Parkinson’s community.

Whatever your connection, show your support and register for A Walk in the Park.
