Trek the the rusty trails of Australia’s Red Centre to improve the lives of those living with Parkinson’s. Discover the diverse desert habitat from one of Australia’s premier walking routes, passing incredible natural wonders and summiting Mount Sondor for a panoramic sunrise over the West MacDonnell Ranges.
We’ll be alongside you all the way, from fundraising and training to strapping on our hiking boots and taking to the trails.
Join us on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to support Parkinson’s Queensland change the quality of life for people impacted by Parkinson’s.
The holiday period is not only a season for joy and togetherness, but also a time to extend our compassion and support to those who have lost a loved one. While the holiday season may evoke a range of emotions, a tribute page can serve as a heartfelt way to honour those who have left a mark on our lives and create a lasting legacy. By sharing stories, photos and reflections on your tribute page, you’ll not only keep their spirit alive, but also offer a meaningful space for friends and family to connect and remember them.
If you’ve lost a friend, family member or colleague with Parkinson’s and want to pay homage to them this festive season, click the button below to create your tribute page.
