A Walk in the Park 2016
Sunday 18th September 2016
Perth: Perry Lakes Reserve
Thank you for your interest in registering for Parkinson's WA's 2016 A Walk in the Park.
For some, A Walk in the Park is an achievement equivalent to a marathon, for others it is a slow walk shared with family and friends or a walk in memory of a loved one.......for those who prefer a challenge, we have organised a 5 and 10km run.
Whichever way you walk this year, we hope you can share in the celebration and enjoy all the activities and entertainment on the day.
Perry Lakes will be the hub for pre and post event activities with live music, free entertainment, food and drink and plenty of fun for young and the young at heart. Gates open at 8am. The run starts at 9am and the walk at 11am.
Parkinson's WA is a small not for profit organisation with a huge task to provide support and services to approximately 20,000 people living with or affected by Parkinson's in WA.
Your contribution, no matter how large or small will directly improve the lives of people with Parkinson's and advance the search for a cure.
