Sunday 28th August 2016 is the 9th annual Unity Walk & Run which has raised more than $1,000,000 for the 700,000 people directly impacted by Parkinson's.

If you would like to raise money for the Wollongong event please follow this link.



      The Parkinson's NSW Unity Walk and Run began in 2008 for three very important reasons:

  • heighten awareness of Parkinson's disease
  • fund important research
  • increase the support services we provide for people living with Parkinson's, their families and carers.

The Unity Walk and Run is the perfect day out with family and friend, whether you prefer a leisurely stroll or a run, or even challenge your self with a half marathon for a great cause. It gives a voice to all those living with or touched by Parkinson's.

The Challenge

With over 700,000 people in Australia directly impacted by Parkinson’s, we help children, parents, husbands, wives, partners, friends and grandchildren from all socioeconomic backgrounds. We also support health professionals working in the area of Parkinson’s disease to better understand the disease and how to assist those affected by it.
