Make a Tax-Deductible Donation before 30 June

The end of the financial year is upon us, so if you’re thinking about making a tax deductible donation, now is the time.

Parkinson’s Queensland receives limited government funding and relies heavily on the support of generous individual, community and corporate donors to ensure we can continue to provide much needed support.

Doug and Ruth Sparkes’ 1000km Long Walk for Parkinson’s
Doug and Ruth Sparkes are keen walkers from Brisbane who have embarked on a challenging, 1000km trek from Aosta to Rome to raise awareness and funds for people living with Parkinson’s. They have made this walk an opportunity to raise awareness and funds for the condition that has affected their family and friends. 

They are  only too aware that the blessing of being able to walk long distances is not something that everyone has the opportunity to take part in, due to illness and other factors.
They will be walking over 44 walking days and 8 rest days.We encourage you to show your support  for their fundraising efforts by donating to their fundraiser today.

Brian Hall’s Ride with Parkinson’s 

Brian Hall’s symptoms of Parkinson’s disease started at age 14. This was the beginning of a very long and frustrating medical journey.

For years, the uncertainty of Brian’s condition left him with a great deal of fear and doubt about his physical future. Then, in 2013 almost 20 years later he got a bicycle, and his entire world changed.

Your ongoing support is vital for us to continue to assist the lives of the 18,500 people with Parkinson’s in Queensland.
