The Kiama Support Group held its Step Up for Parkinson’s fundraiser on Sunday, 4 June.
It was a lively event in a picturesque location – the beach and walking path adjoining Kiama Harbour. It was well-attended by walkers of all abilities, their families and other supporters.
Kiama Rotary was on hand conducting its popular sausage sizzle and there were two warm-up sessions prior to the walk – dance for Parkinson’s and group exercises.
Prior to the walk a Parkinson’s Community Hero Award was presented to exercise physiologist Sarah Clemm who supports the local Group with exercise sessions at its regular meetings.
In addition to sponsorships of walkers, other fundraising initiatives included multiple raffle draws and sales of Parkinson’s NSW branded merchandise.
