Thank you for being one of our heroes and supporting us through the 2017 Parkinson's WA's A Walk in the Park.

This event brings together Western Australian's from all walks of life - people living with or at risk of Parkinson's, their families, carers, friends, supporters, health professionals and the wider community.

Participants put their best foot forward in a 2 or 5km non-competitive walk around picturesque Perry Lakes Reserve in Floreat.  The course is mobility-friendly, and the family pooch is welcome too.

Gates open at 9.30 - Walk begins at 11am. Join us for a picnic, live music and dancing, kids activities and a traditional sausage sizzle.

Your participation will support our vision for a nation without Parkinson's. Thank you for joining us.

Parkinson's Western Australia Inc

Incorporated in 1984, Parkinson's Western Australia Inc. is a small not for profit organisation with the task of providing care and services to nearly 20,000 people living with or affected by Parkinson's in Western Australia.

Our vision is for a nation without Parkinson's.

Our mission is to encourage, develop and implement programs for the cure, treatment and care of people with Parkinson's.

At present there is no cure and as most people live for many years with this progressive condition, the primary focus of treatment is on the control and management of symptoms and reduction in complications associated with Parkinson's.

The Parkinson's WA's Nurse Specialist Service provides education, support, assessment and ongoing monitoring of people living with the condition. The Service covers the metropolitan and some regional areas in Western Australia.

There are 22 active Parkinson's Support Groups in the State. We also offer our community, access to regular weekly dance, tai chi, yoga and singing classes.

In addition to conducting seminars and funding research,Parkinson's WA provides an educational role to medical and allied health professionals with the aim of ensuring informed care.
