World Parkinson’s Day was on Wednesday April 11th
2018. It was an amazing opportunity to raise awareness
and have fun for not only our support groups, but for the
community in general.
The Parkinson’s support groups across NSW were out
in force celebrating the day with picnics, cake stalls,
information booths, parties and even a gala cocktail
In Sydney, guests were honoured to spend the
morning with our Patron, His Excellency General The
Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Ret’d) and Mrs. Hurley
at Government House. We will be featuring this event in
our next edition of Stand By Me.
Across the world, 50 nations came together to celebrate
the day, with the global message #UniteforParkisons.
